Using big data to improve smart manufacturing

Kitchener, Ontario - July 6, 2016

Turn your collected data into action

In the past, many fabs simply reacted to the limited set of data they were able to collect and equipment makers struggled with limited tool processing information from the fabs. But now, large volumes of equipment data can be made available. Fabs are collecting big data from all of their equipment, factory systems, and processes. 

Big data provides new opportunities to fabs and OEMs  

  • Fabs can benefit from more efficient, predictive manufacturing and leverage newly available equipment data to remove inefficiencies, reduce costs, and improve uptime and yields. They can identify potential issues before they become problems.
  • With more equipment data available to them, OEMs can use it to ensure optimal equipment performance during production and provide a higher standard of service to their fab customers.

Successful big data solutions enable intelligent monitoring and allow complex manufacturers and their equipment suppliers to turn information into action, and they can do this quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. Both fabs and OEMs want the ability to make manufacturing decisions and process modifications in real time. Everyone wants to save time and money.
