SEMI E87 CRTU Prediction

Here at PEER Group®, we are really excited about the latest change to the E87 standard, Carrier
Ready to Unload.

This change allows a host to request a prediction about when a carrier is going to be complete. So,
instead of waiting until the carrier is finished processing, you can actually have the tool send a
prediction for when the carrier is going to be ready.

This allows the host to schedule the material handling system to pick up the carrier in the future at a
more opportune time. This is going to increase throughput throughout the entire facility.
This change is a great example of how the SEMI Standards process helps to take the requirements of
the factories and the capabilities of the tool makers and combine them to move the entire industry forward.
