Evolving from Lean to Smart Manufacturing

For decades, lean manufacturing processes have helped semiconductor companies stay alive in the challenge industry with high demand. But, it’s a time of intense change for semiconductor manufacturers and the global semiconductor ecosystem where intelligence and visibility are now needed. Without smart manufacturing tools such as the digital twin to simulate and virtually assess the feasibility of process plans, companies find themselves at a disadvantage. How can you shift from lean manufacturing to smart manufacturing? Dive into the three ways to do so in this webinar.

Like other semiconductor companies, you have relied on lean manufacturing techniques for decades. It’s a matter of survival. You need lean manufacturing efficiencies to minimize waste and maximize productivity, but it doesn’t get you everything you need for today’s rapidly evolving market. The time has come to gain what you’ve been missing – to shift from lean manufacturing to smart manufacturing.

With smart manufacturing, you connect every aspect of manufacturing to gather the real-time data you need to make intelligent decisions, whether it's a business decision or an engineering decision or a maintenance decision needed to prevent any adverse event from happening. With better connectivity among systems, managers gain more visibility into production steps, which equips them to detect and address potential errors earlier in the process.

So, how do you shift from lean manufacturing to smart manufacturing? Find out when you attend this webinar.

Key Takeaways

To evolve from lean to Smart Manufacturing, learn how to leverage:

  • The virtual representation of the manufacturing process
  • Closed loop real-time reporting and analytics
  • Seamless collaboration across disciplines
