In today’s fabs, it has become increasingly difficult and time-consuming to integrate and harmonize the data coming from diverse computer-integrated manufacturing applications. In fact, this is now a major stumbling block to the rapid deployment of these systems and, hence, to the ability of a fab to quickly achieve targeted productivity.
