CONSILIUM LAUNCHES SEMICONDUCTOR FAB MANAGEMENT SOLUTION.

Consilium, an Applied Materials, Inc. company, has released its FAB300 2.0 product, a wafer fab management software package specifically designed to meet the new requirements of 300mm wafer production. The FAB300 2.0 product integrates a full complement of operating modules, enabling chipmakers to easily manage 300mm wafer movement and equipment operation in a single, fully automated, fab-wide solution.

FAB300 2.0 software offers many features never before available in a fab control package that allow chipmakers to realize the full potential of their facilities. Its broad array of fab management applications seamlessly integrates wafer and tool data, providing a closed-loop information stream essential for completely automated operation. By managing the detailed information from each wafer and process tool, FAB300 2.0 software enables rapid production ramps, use of fewer non-product wafers, and much more efficient day-to-day production decisions on the plant floor.

Providing key functions to improve overall fab effectiveness, the FAB300 2.0 product includes wafer management, advanced process and equipment management and intelligent dispatching. The software tracks the processing of individual wafers, including monitor wafers, by tool and chamber, as well as tracking multiple lots and non-product wafers within single carriers. Its ability to view equipment details down to the process chamber and component level enhances management's ability to operate the equipment at maximum efficiency and effectiveness. FAB300 2.0 combines complete equipment maintenance management capabilities with process and materials management.

The FAB300 2.0 product conforms to all relevant standards for 300mm fab operation, including SEMI's CIM Framework, and follows the Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. FAB300 2.0 software runs on the Microsoft Windows 2000(R) operating system and uses the Microsoft Transaction Server and Oracle8(R) database.
