The era of smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0 and the smart factory promises significant opportunities to reduce cost, boost productivity and improve quality in microelectronics manufacturing. But it also presents the industry with new, unique challenges.
The cost of a new fab today can approach $10 billion, and such a high level of capital expenditure increases the importance of delivering a fast return on that investment. Now, a new early-stage fab-planning offering from the Applied Materials FabVantage™ Consulting group can help customers achieve faster, more efficient startups.
When Semicon Europa opens in Munich, Germany, (November 14-17) it will, for the first time ever, be co-located with the long-standing European electronics show, productronica, creating a major single event for European electronics manufacturing and attracting thousands of visitors from across the electronic supply chain.
Industry 4.0/Smart Manufacturing and Big Data among hot topics as chip industry technologists converge to examine challenges and solutions for advanced process control (APC) in microelectronics manufacturing.
Semiconductor and display manufacturing are highly complex undertakings, but in that complexity lay many opportunities to improve the speed, efficiency, productivity and environmental impact of production tools and factory systems.
