Advanced production scheduling in a Seagate Technology wafer fab
Flexciton's smart scheduling technology can be divided into two categories: global fab-wide scheduling and toolset scheduling. This technical paper provides a comprehensive overview of results from benchmark studies performed for Seagate Technology, where our solution was applied to metrology toolset scheduling.
What we'll cover in this technical paper
The complicated scheduling problem in wafer fabs
The broader impact of high-quality scheduling decisions in semiconductor industries
The pros and cons of traditional heuristic-based scheduling practices, compared with Flexciton’s hybrid-optimization approach
Seagate's performance benchmark study, comparing the new proposed scheduling technology with the current simulation scheduler at Seagate Springtown
Results from Seagate's optimized schedules report, showing a significant reduction in cycle times and increase in throughput compared with SimModel schedules
Flexciton's cutting-edge smart scheduling for wafer fabs
