The D-SIMCON Scheduler allows determination of 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.
Forecaster and Scenario Manager
The D-SIMCON Forecaster provides visibility into critical KPIs such wafer arrivals, wafer departures and WIP down to the work centre and product group level with a time horizon of up to two weeks allowing production departments to evaluate configuration changes that can be implemented fast enough to achieve the desired impact on the WIP flow within a time horizon as short as a few days.
The D-SIMCON WIP Optimiser leverages the D-SIMCON Forecaster to evaluate the effect of the operation policies (such as dedication qualification, wafer start plan, dispatch rule adjustment or PM timing) on production performance in an automatic manner to determine optimal policies with regard to either cycle time, cycle time variability or throughput over the next 1-2 weeks.
Dynamic Capacity Planner
The D-SIMCON Dynamic Capacity Planner allows determination of capacity entitlements and lead times associated with committed customer orders and forecasted demand.
Load Mix Optimiser
The D-SIMCON Load Mix Optimiser automates the process of load mix determination and works with both dynamic capacity engines (such as the D-SIMCON Dynamic Capacity Planner) and static capacity models.
