Why choose Flexciton's scheduler?

globally optimized 1-01.png

Flexciton is the only mathematical optimization-based scheduling software for wafer fabs. The ability to customise your objectives means that the scheduler will automatically optimize to your fab's KPIs, whether you target cost, quality or delivery.

By utilizing cloud computing, fully  optimized schedules are delivered fast and refreshed every 5 minutes. The system scales up and down easily – whether your scheduling problem gets harder, or more equipment is added in your fab.

Unlike commonly used scheduling systems, Flexciton’s scheduler does not require setting up or maintaining ‘if-then’ rules. Our optimization algorithms perform consistently in any situation, automatically adjusting to ever-changing fab environment.

How our solution works

Flexciton 3 2022-01.png

The diagram above gives an overview of how our solution functions with the rest of your fab. We make release decisions that decide the optimal time to start lots or release them from buffers. Our product then predicts potential dynamic bottlenecks and re-prioritises WIP to balance the line and send the right lots to the right toolset. Our local toolset optimization then predicts future arrivals and improves toolset KPIs such as throughput, queue time and reticle moves.
