Getting new products into the system is quite positive. The time it takes was reduced from 20 hours over a few months to five hours within one day. We can now build up the work instructions and flow structure, prepare it completely, and do a dry run to test it. When we’re ready to switch from an old to a new product, everything is ready. We can easily see which steps are in the flow and the work instructions for each step for that item.

Before implementing Critical Manufacturing MES, Philips had spent several years trying to standardize operations with a competitive product, without a successful result. It proved to be inflexible for Front End operations and we could not achieve useful reporting. We had to change course and after a mapping exercise with potential MES candidates, Critical Manufacturing ranked highly with advanced capabilities designed specifically for use in Front End and semiconductor operations.
