Porto, Portugal/SuZhou / China July 23rd, 2014 – Nanjing, China-based Nanjing GuoShen Electronics, a world leader in integrated circuit research and manufacture, has chosen cmNavigo, Critical Manufacturing’s MES and Production Control System, to provide a real-time virtual window into its manufacturing process. GuoSheng gained advanced visualization and control over its manufacturing processes with FAB modeling and monitoring and statistical process control capabilities integrated with data collection, materials tracking, WIP tracking and exceptions management.
“We were looking for a global partner to provide a state of the art manufacturing intelligence system and one who is also deeply experienced with our industry’s specific needs, while providing us the local service we have come to expect from our technology partners,” said Yu Chen, CIO of Nanjing GuoShen Electronics.“The cmNavigo system from Critical Manufacturing provides us with the interactive production monitoring capabilities we need to improve performance and quality on the production side, and the integrated maintenance, materials and exceptions management modules that help us to manage the business side more efficiently.”
Critical Manufacturing MES provides users with a single, integrated view of enterprise data, improving decision-making around critical business and production processes. It can be implemented plant wide, across a division or globally, and gives users a manufacturing intelligence solution that scales to fit their growth needs. fabLIVE, interactive fab monitoring solution, enables semiconductor manufacturers to easily design and deploy a plant layout, create dashboards, track supply chain, design/build and process details to increase efficiency and utilization, and hone in on potential problem areas. Advanced exceptions management capabilities enable users to define manually- or automatically-triggered responses based on EDC limits and SPC rules to prevent out-of-spec material from being moved or shipped.
“Our modular system gives manufacturers reliable access to their operational intelligence quickly, easily, and at the right level of granularity to make informed decisions,” said Lau Yong-Wun, Critical Manufacturing’s China MD. “As a result, our customers are able to gain visibility and process control even as they drive down cost and build better efficiency across their supply chain.”
Critical Manufacturing’s flagship MES product, cmNavigo, and its record for service has recently been recognized by analysts from Frost & Sullivan with its Global Price Performance Value Leadership award for the product’s features, ease of use and low total cost of ownership.
Critical Manufacturing provides manufacturers in highly-complex environments with a modular, scalable manufacturing execution and intelligence system that enables users to flexibly address market demands, increase efficiency and bolster reliability across the supply chain while lowering TCO. The company is part of the Critical Group, a private group of companies founded in 1998 to provide solutions for mission and business critical information systems.
