How smart scheduling works
Data services generate a digital twin of a fab, where all the dependencies between machines, lots and recipes etc. are captured. Advanced mathematical optimization is used to evaluate millions of schedules at once, selecting the most optimal every four minutes and feeding back to a fab dispatch system.
The optimal schedule will direct wafer traffic around dynamic bottlenecks and can streamline production to increase throughput. The model incorporates any constraints found in a fab, such as batch sizes, reticle availability, kanbans, time links, etc.
