FASTECH INTEGRATION, INC. ANNOUNCES STATIONWORKS APPLICATION SOFTWARE FOR SEMICONDUCTOR FACTORY INTEGRATION

 SEMICON/West '93, SAN FRANCISCO, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- FASTech Integration, Inc. today announced STATIONworks(tm), the first off-the- shelf software solution for semiconductor factory integration. Uniting manufacturing resources and processes into a single, efficient operation, STATIONworks dramatically increases productivity and reduces costs in both wafer fabrication and back-end assembly and test. This comprehensive set of application modules also decreases the time required to set up and deploy solutions throughout one or more manufacturing facilities.
 By providing the power and functionality to decrease scrap, maximize equipment use, reduce cycle times and enhance process control, STATIONworks addresses the most common and costly problems faced by semiconductor manufacturers today. "STATIONworks is a highly cost- effective solution," comments Jeffrey Cassis, FASTech's vice president of sales and marketing. "Customers can start out gradually by using STATIONworks to automate a single production line and, over time, extend the applications to their entire manufacturing operation. STATIONworks' preconfigured applications and underlying software tools support rapid development of systems that integrate a Shop Floor Control System with station controllers providing local applications and equipment support. The software empowers operators to make intelligent decisions that result in dramatically reduced costs and increased productivity."
 STATIONworks is consistent with SEMATECH's Strategic Cell Controller and Distributed Factory System programs and utilizes object-oriented methodology to maximize reusability of interfaces and applications from one project to another. The ability to leverage existing code from one project to another results in rapid deployment of new automation applications across multiple factories worldwide, regardless of changes in equipment or manufacturing processes.
 STATIONworks is built upon FASTech's proven CELLworks(R) tool set, the most widely used enabling software in the manufacturing industry. STATIONworks modules provide preconfigured applications for automated data collection, recipe management, equipment monitoring, alarm management, and host interfaces. In addition, STATIONworks users can utilize CELLworks tools to extend their applications with cell-level functions such as SPC scheduling, trending, graphics, animation, and interfaces to other software programs.
 Founded in 1986, FASTech Integration, Inc. is a privately held company that develops, markets and supports open, object-based manufacturing software tools and applications that provide the lowest life cycle cost of ownership. Located in Lincoln, Mass., FASTech is among the fastest growing businesses in the MES market with more than 450 installations and over 2,000 licenses sold worldwide.
