When a send-ahead wafer is executed through the same MES which is responsible for the overall process execution, all the delays and lack of traceability disappear.
A modern MES is capable of providing manufacturers much more than traceability; in fact, the right MES data platform, which is IIoT enabled and has the capability of integrating with IT applications both from automation layer to the ERP/SCM/WMS layer, can act as the cornerstone to successfully answer market needs.
Let’s examine a use case of MES implementation where there is a high level of vertical integration, multiple product variants, and production lines executing a mix of process and discrete manufacturing modes. There are also strict compliance requirements with paper-based capture of process data. Essentially, the MES is crucial to the manufacturing process and the value chain.
To bake a good cake, you must get the processes right. These include mixing to the right consistency and baking at the correct temperature for the appropriate length of time – but fundamental to your success is the recipe. To create your masterpiece, you must add the right ingredients in the proper quantities. The same is true for the MedTech manufacturers producing combination medical devices.
