What Is Factory Automation? In order to stay competitive, IC manufacturers must continually improve the productivity of their factories. Increasing wafer size as well as building larger fabs with thousands of wafer starts per day are two methods that IC manufacturers use to minimize their manufacturing costs. To support the complex logistics requirements of these factories, companies utilize computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) and factory automation to ensure that the right material is delivered to the right place at the right time and that it is processed correctly. Software solutions utilized in semiconductor factories include the manufacturing execution system (MES), the manufacturing control system (MC…
