Optimizing Fab Efficiency: Advanced Production Scheduling in a Seagate Technology Wafer Fab

June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Wafer fabrication is not only a highly complex manufacturing process but also capital intensive. With the cost of a single new 300mm fab now exceeding $1bn and with some tools costing in excess of $40m, fixed costs are significant and demand high fab utilization.

In an environment where capacity and production efficiency is key to continued cost reductions, the benefit of high-quality scheduling is huge to factory efficiency. It enables higher utilization of expensive toolsets (e.g., photolithography and etch), reduces cycle times and ensures on-time delivery.

During this webinar, we will:

  • Discuss traditional heuristic-based scheduling practices versus an innovative approach to wafer fab scheduling, developed by Flexciton in close cooperation with Seagate Technology.
  • Present conclusions from offline simulation benchmark studies that involved historical datasets of the metrology toolsets in the Seagate Springtown.
  • Share the results achieved in production after applying this advanced scheduling solution in a Seagate Technology facility in Northern Ireland
  • Discuss the key learnings from the implementation process.
