MES for Semiconductor & Solar
Modern MES masters new requirements in the frontend and backend manufacturing process
Modern MES platform enables the next digitalization step
The semiconductor and solar industry has been taking on a leading role for many years in the digitalization and automation of manufacturing processes. Newer requirements such as Single Wafer Tracking, global and interconnected manufacturing, worldwide transparency for real-time control and quality assurance are increasingly bringing older systems to their limits.
Opcenter Execution Semiconductor (Opcenter EX SM, formerly Camstar Enterprise Platform) integrates automation islands and decoupled systems and enables manufacturers to take the next step in digitalization as a basis for future innovation. Opcenter EX SM is designed for frontend and backend manufacturing and offers a high level of Out-of-the-Box industry functionality, flexible configuration options and full interoperability with other systems. It provides real-time information starting from test results and yield up to statistical quality control and, thereby, creates the precondition for an increase in quality and productivity.
Pioneer for digitalization, shopfloor integration and equipment automation
For more than 30 years, we have been pioneers in the field of Manufacturing IT solutions for the semiconductor industry. Our specialists support customers in semiconductor and solar manufacturing worldwide in digitalizing, optimizing and automating manufacturing processes. In combining the MES with our equipment integration platform PAC, we enable a fullly automated control, monitoring, material traceability and data collection for the shop floor. Our service portfolio includes various automation scenarios and levels of automation, from simple data collection through basic and advanced automation up to the lights-out factory.
