CONSILIUM LAUNCHES SEMICONDUCTOR FAB MANAGEMENT SOLUTION.Consilium, an Applied Materials Applied Materials, Inc. NASDAQ: AMAT (HKSE: 4336 ) is the global leader in nanomanufacturing technology solutions with a broad portfolio of innovative equipment, service and software products for the fabrication of semiconductor chips, flat panel solar displays, solar , 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 Materials management is the branch of logistics that deals with the tangible components of a supply chain. Specifically, this covers the acquisition of spare parts and replacements, quality control of purchasing and ordering such parts, and the standards involved in ordering, .
The FAB300 2.0 product conforms to all relevant standards for 300mm fab operation, including SEMI's CIM (1) (Computer-Integrated Manufacturing) Integrating office/accounting functions with automated factory systems. Point of sale, billing, machine tool scheduling and supply ordering are part of CIM. Framework, and follows the Technology Roadmap The context of product management
