icon_role_exec Benefits for Executives

One Global MES: Eliminate multiple legacy systems, plant-to-plant product variation, and siloed information by standardizing on a single, modern enterprise platform architecture.

Protected Future with Modern Systems: Eliminate corporate and brand risk exposure from numerous legacy systems and applications that are reaching end-of-life.  Position for future growth and greater market share with a scalable, adaptable, modern MES platform.

Rapid NPI & Stabilization: Concurrent product and manufacturing process engineering streamlines design transfer, reduces new product ramp time, and brings innovative technologies more rapidly to market.  Global manufacturing control and enforcement reduces variability throughout the design and manufacturing processes, stabilizes new products faster, provides for rapid deployment of engineering changes, and allows yields to scale rapidly.

Reduced Operational & Support Costs:  Eliminate the costs associated with managing multiple islands of automation by removing systems that can be incorporated into the base platform for Camstar’s Semiconductor Manufacturing Execution System (MES).  Speed time to change and adopt better ways of operation by utilizing one common platform for all semiconductor front-end, back-end, and sub-contractor operations. Drive tighter, enterprise-wide compliance through one plant floor system, yielding one view of operations world-wide through a common lens.

Stabilized Supply Chain: Improve planning and scheduling with real-time plant information. Diminish upstream and downstream supply chain disruptions through complete product and process enforcement, reconciliation and traceability.

Global Visibility & Reporting: View in real-time, reliable enterprise-wide data comparing plant-to-plant, line-to-line, and shift-to-shift performance. Utilize native, robust dashboard capabilities to provide relevant, real-time information to every stakeholder from Executives to Line Operators.

icon_role_operations Benefits for Operations

Improved Product and Process Traceability:  Trace any product, lot or unit and its processes across the supply chain, a factory, multiple factories, or the entire enterprise. Traceability data includes backwards and forwards genealogy of materials consumed, processes and equipment utilized, parametric and quality data collected, exceptions, rework, dates and times, and electronic signatures.

Increased Throughput:  Significantly increase overall throughput through real-time granular visibility into manufacturing and WIP, better process enforcements, and right first time production.

Increased Product/Process Yield: Reduce scrap and rework and improve first pass yield through systematic product/process controls by enforcing accurate data collections, usage of only authorized materials, utilization of the right procedures and equipment, certification of operators, and more.

Increased Capacity: Improve utilization of assets and human capital through real-time visibility and elimination of non-value added activities.

Improved Ramp to Volume and Yield: Improve yields affected by decreasing process improvement time and minimizing engineering change to line impact, provide process standardization, process enforcement, and real-time visibility into operations.

icon_role_compliance Benefits for Quality & Compliance

Reduce Risk Exposure to Quality Incidents:  Systematic real-time enforcement of operations best practice reduce risk by ensuring processes and procedures are performed right the first time.

Reduce Line and Site Variability:  Standardize processes across operations within a site and between sites ensuring product consistency.

Better Traceability: Search across all manufacturing and quality related data – work order, lot, unit, operator, material, equipment, etc. in a matter of seconds.

Faster & Accurate Impact Analysis: Search and filter for suspect lots/units/material based on criteria such as component lots/sub-assemblies, equipment used, revision of specifications, and operators.

Better Product & Process Design: Receive accurate data on product and process performance information, actual occurrence rate of failure modes, identification of common failures by product/process, and via collaboration with product and process engineers.

icon_role_it Benefits for IT

Adaptable User Interface: Easily and rapidly configure user interfaces for each stakeholder that match the way they work.  Increasing user speed and eliminating unnecessary steps during manufacturing.  Support global operations worldwide with any language.

Full Scalability: A complete enterprise platform architecture for manufacturing, quality, and intelligence that grows and adapts with you.  Support frequent change and reconfiguration – flexibility managed at your finger-tips.  Proven and reliable 24 X 365 operation.

Shop Floor to Top Floor Visibility: Utilize native, robust dashboard capabilities to provide relevant, real-time information to every stakeholder from Executives to Line Operators.

Single Manufacturing Standard: Simplify and Standardize IT systems across all operations, accounting for and better utilizing multiple concurrent manufacturing processes and assets.

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership: A single, modular enterprise manufacturing IT platform eliminates disparate and redundant systems and applications increasing system value while lowering total cost of ownership.  Further reduce costs with significant out-of-the-box functionality and best practices avoiding custom coding and development.

icon_role_randd Benefits for R&D and Engineering

Rapid NPI & Stabilization: Concurrent product and manufacturing process engineering streamlines design transfer, reduces new product ramp time, and brings innovative technologies more rapidly to market.  Global manufacturing control and enforcement reduces variability throughout the design and manufacturing processes, stabilizes new products faster, provides for rapid deployment of engineering changes, and allows yields to scale rapidly.

Enhanced Modeling & Testing: Accurately understand manufacturing capabilities through integrated modelling and testing that leverages manufacturing and product past performance.

ECO Visibility & Performance: Understand the impact in real-time of systemically enforcing an engineering change order (ECO).  View performance impact immediately, prevent/control downstream effects, and verify post-change results through effectivity monitoring and system alerts.

icon_role_supplychain Benefits for the Supply Chain

Stabilized Supply Chain: Improve supply chain planning and scheduling with real-time plant information. Diminish upstream and downstream supply chain disruptions through complete product and process enforcement and real-time information.

Visible Supply Chain: Complete supply chain visibility by removing the manufacturing ‘black hole’. Enable knowledgeable end-to-end supply chain management through one operational lens.
