What Is Achievable With A Yield Management System?

Semiconductor manufacturers are under constant pressure to increase yields and cut costs. Yield Management Systems (YMS) are designed specifically to meet the needs of semiconductor manufacturers, enabling them to investigate yield excursions, streamline the manufacturing processes, optimize the supply chain, analyze tools and eliminate workplace inefficiencies. In terms of data challenges... » read more

Integrating Siloed Data In Semiconductor Manufacturing

In semiconductor manufacturing, huge amounts of data are generated and collected at every step in multiple production areas, with data coming from wafer fab, probe/testing, assembly, and final test. That data is usually stored separately in its respective manufacturing department, isolated from other departments. In order to analyze the production data and make better decisions, yield an... » read more
