Eyelit's advanced technology MES will replace FactoryWorks MES at California site
Toronto, Canada - Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced that Global Communication Semiconductors (GCS), a leader in a wide variety of wafer foundry services, has selected Eyelit Manufacturing software to replace its FactoryWorks MES at its wafer fab in Torrance, California.
With its increasing spectrum of fabrication technologies, GCS determined it was necessary to change systems and implement a next-generation MES to handle its complex manufacturing operations. Eyelit's solution will help GCS to rapidly introduce and manage dynamic process technologies, improve quality, and reduce costs. GCS recognized Eyelit's success in easily migrating legacy MES systems in wafer fabrication facilities, and looks forward to seeing significant improvements in operations by implementing Eyelit MES, Eyelit Asset Management, Eyelit Reporting, and Eyelit Automated Data Services.
"GCS is very excited to implement Eyelit's MES in our clean room. We run high-mix process flows on GaAs, GaN, and InP wafers, and Eyelit's combination of flexibility and power will be a huge step up in capability from our current system," stated Franklin Monzon, Vice-President of Operations, GCS. "We expect that improvements, especially in configurability and traceability, will lead to reductions in scrap and cycle time, and to increases in productivity. We also intend to take advantage of Eyelit's capability to streamline our lot-tracking system, which right now relies on detailed paper travelers alongside our MES, into an electronic system that will reduce errors and facilitate corrective actions."
"Eyelit is firmly established as the premier, next-generation solution for companies that retire their legacy systems to obtain leading-edge MES capabilities, and to reduce costs and risks. With this implementation at GCS, Eyelit builds further on its tradition of replacing MES systems from other vendors, including Applied Materials' WorkStream, PROMIS, and FactoryWorks products," stated Dan Estrada, Eyelit's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. "We are extremely pleased to help GCS move to Eyelit's advanced, award-winning software, and also enable the reduction of infrastructure costs and long-term cost of ownership."
