Applied Materials offers comprehensive factory automation solutions that include manufacturing execution systems (MES), manufacturing control systems (MCS) and equipment engineering systems (EES). Our track record in the display industry, deep understanding of LCD tools and processes, and global and local support capabilities give customers the assurance they need to forge ahead.
Using Applied Materials' automation software, display manufacturers can scale their factories, reduce scrap and stabilize their processes, especially as they move into larger size glass substrates. They also discover newfound flexibility in selecting the most competitively priced hardware from AMHS transport vendors and stocker hardware vendors because Applied’s factory-wide management solution works with all platforms.
Applied automation software solutions deliver a scalable system architecture that improves performance and throughput.
Manufacturing execution systems (MES) manage work in process (WIP), including labor and production; material control systems (MCS) coordinate the transportation and storage of wafers, reticles, LCD panels and other materials in manufacturing facilities.
Our automated systems maximize productivity and minimize costs by providing real-time decision-making capabilities.
Automation and equipment engineering systems (EES) combine statistical process control (SPC), fault detection and advanced process control (APC) capabilities on a single platform to lower overall cost of ownership.
