Determine the optimal sequence of production lots to be processed at a bottleneck work center, either with regard to maximising throughput, minimising queuing time or minimising cycle time variability.
Dispatch List Generation
Sales Target Setting
Setting of sales targets based on committed customer orders, forecasted demand and capacity constraints taking into account the objective set by the sales team – maximise output, revenue or margin.
Available to Promise
Available-To-Promise (ATP) function allows accurate responses to customer order enquiries by taking into account resource availability, current load of the fab and forecasted demand.
Wafer Start Planning
Determine the optimal schedule and pattern to release wafers into the production line, taking into account the dynamic capacity, optimal load mix and business objective function.
WIP Flow Forecast
Provide visibility with regard to anticipated Work in Progress (WIP) wave movement in the production line to forecast the expected WIP.
Preventive Maintenance Timing
Determine the optimal time of Preventive Maintenance to ensure least disruption.
Proactive WIP Management
Determine how to react best to an anticipated WIP wave or a major fab event such as breakdown of a bottleneck tool.
Wafer Output Forecast
Support line control and other departments with a fab wafer out forecast at the granularity of choice.
