Keynote – The 4th Industry Revolution –
a two-fold opportunity for the semiconductor industry
Due to the complexity of the manufacturing process in semiconductor industry networked equipment, Automated Material Handling systems and
manufacturing facilities interchanging information along the value chain
have been leveraged for decades. With the 4th Industry Revolution other
industries such as industrial equipment, automotive and life-sciences now
are introducing these concepts as a foundation for enabling smart globally
networked production environments based on Cyber-Physical Systems. The
result is a two-fold opportunity for the semiconductor industry: On the one
hand self-optimizing and autonomously controlling manufacturing lines
based on smart Cyber-Physical Systems offer great potential for achieving
unheard-of efficiencies. On the other hand, as electronics are essentially
required key components for any Cyber-Physical System the market for the
semiconductor industry has the potential to expand significantly.

An MES based innovative production method for turbochargers
Continental has used an innovative production method for its turbocharger (TC). All the main components have been designed for fully-automated
assembly along a single axis, whereas conventional turbochargers have to
be put together in several stages, partly by hand. Fully-automated assembly
delivers quality benefits through lower defect rates; it also produces cost benefits and both are important in view of the fact that these turbochargers are
to be installed in high-volume model series. The implementation of the full
traceability on the TC production line comes with a lot of challenges. These
challenges are due to the complexity of the processes and of the product, the
uniqueness of the production equipment and of the processes, the usage of
the latest technology for the processes, and the production line structure. You
will learn, how we mastered those challenges using MES.

Production and process monitoring during the roll-to-roll
production of flexible electronics by integrated MES
3D-Micromac AG has developed the microFLEX product family for the manufacturing of electronic products on flexible carrier substrates such as organic solar cells, light emitting diodes or displays, printed batteries, or flexible
PCBs. The production of flexible electronics in a roll-to-roll process results in
some peculiarities and increasing MES requirements due to the continuous
production process, the linkage of all the individual processes and the high
product throughput. All relevant data must be collected and analyzed in real
time as during process instabilities or irregularities individual processes cannot be stopped arbitrarily, but only the complete production. 3D-Micromac
introduced the microMES based on camLine’s InFrame Synapse MES mini.
Only this way it is possible to quickly and effectively intervene in the production process and prevent larger off-specification batches.

Extending the camLine “backbone” of Entegris‘
Process Control System through the supply chain
Entegris designs and manufactures a wide variety of capital and consumable
products for the semiconductor industry used in 14 – 20 nm manufacturing
technology nodes. Variations in the manufacturing process including raw
materials can have extreme effects to the performance of Entegris customer’s
products and processes. We will review at a high level the roadmap of our
camLine project from the beginning and provide a more in depth review of
how camLine is helping Entegris manage the global supply chain.

Standardization of corporate Out-of-Control Action Plans (OCAP)
GLOBALFOUNDRIES has embarked on standardizing response to inhibits
and violations using camLine’s eCAP. The use of eCAP provides a platform
to institute a culture of problem solving as it pertains to production stability and communication. GLOBALFOUNDRIES has invested in a three Fab
project to standardize the corporate OCAPs into eCAP and reduce the mean
time to resolving inhibits while improving the quality of decisions. The use
of eCAP with SPACE have allowed GLOBALFOUNDRIES to measure and track
progress of tasks and practices to respond to SPC violations. The results have
translated into improved communication for pass down and Best Known
Practices as well as more effective control of processes. This has improved the
time to resolve repeat violations and helped to train the community to understand process SPC attributes.

Keynote – Industry 4.0: IT Security as a Key Challenge
Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, promotes the usage of ICT
in traditional industries by using cyber-physical systems and Internet of
Things. Such smart factories have the ability to work in a self-organized
way, acting and reacting in an autonomous way. The ICT is hereby the key
technology. What are the key challenges to secure the underlying ICT, and
with this the smart factory as a whole? How to approach cyber security
threats in a smart factory?

Replacing a Recipe Management System in
a Fully Automated 300mm Factory
In one of its state-of-the-art fully automated 300mm factories,
GLOBALFOUNDRIES decided to migrate from a home-grown system to
camLine’s LineWorks RM as an advanced Recipe Management System. The
challenge was to convert the entire factory of tools to a new system while
the factory was in full operation. This presentation will retrospectively
trace our approach and address major accomplishments we achieved. In
particular, you will see how we created a high performance matrix team
and used lean manufacturing techniques as factors contributing to the success of this project. By designing feedback loops to continually improve the
migration of each equipment set, we show the compounding nature of this
process. Lastly, we will highlight some major advantages leveraged in the
product to reduce risk and improve engineering efficiency.

QM Solar deployment at 3SUN Photovoltaic thin
film mass production manufacturing
Process control and related problems of reproducibility and stability have
always been, and still are, the decisive factors determining the quality and
the process profitability in thin film products, especially when they are
produced in large volumes (>4000 panels with more than half Megawatt
power a day in 3SUN) in a highly competitive industrial sector.
In order to improve the products performances and their quality and the
manufacturing mechanical yield 3Sun has started and completed in one
year time frame a corporate project to integrate QM Solar on an already existing analysis and off line only control platform with access to all relevant
data. This solution based on camLine’s Cornerstone and Enhanced Cornerstone for the offline analysis and on camLine’s QM Solar SPACE for the real
time controls was deployed in two phases:
Phase 1: Cornerstone introduction that was able with the advanced off line
engineering analysis to focus some unknown key parameters for product
performances and equipment’s stability.
Phase 2: SPACE introduction after successful phase 1 that allowed to monitor in real-time those key parameters plus a lot of other equipment and
output parameter giving a complete control of the shop floor.
Resulting benefits were improvements in panel efficiency and in manufacturing yield through this efficient and fast OOC detection.

SFM – a new Fleet Manager for Self Navigating Systems
Microchip manufacturing is done in a very challenging production environment, characterized by a 24/7 production, extreme cleanliness
requirements in a mixed human-machine environment with limited
space conditions. In mature semiconductor fabs wafers often are handled
between the different fabrication steps manually. For those conditions
Roth & Rau – Ortner (RRO) and its partner MetraLabs have developed the
freely navigating autonomous mobile robot SCOUT®, which is not only
able to transport, but also to actively pick and place payloads in semiconductor fabs, which dramatically increases the potential benefit of a Self
Navigating System. If multiple SCOUTs are used the necessity of a central
fleet management becomes crucial. For that reason camLine Dresden
together with RRO developed the SCOUT Fleet Manager based on camLines’s Synapse framework.

Best practices in experiment management
Everybody who is working in research & development or prototyping
knows the problem: more time is spent on collecting and reorganizing data than on actual research. Data from multiple sources like Excel
Sheets, MES Databases, images and other documents need to be collected
and analyzed. While the volume and velocity of the data in R&D are in
most cases a minor issue, the sheer variety of data makes this certainly a
case for Big Data concepts. Minimizing the amount of time spent on collecting and reorganizing data, creating reports and presentations has certainly a big impact on research budgets and time to market. Adding the
benefit of finding historical data and preventing the repeat of previous
experiments and errors makes looking into these issues a must. This talk
will present the problems of data management in R&D and will highlight
best practices to overcome these problems. A new methodology and supporting software tools will be introduced.

What’s new in Cornerstone 6.0
Nils Knoblauch
Product Manager, camLine GmbH, Germany
Coating Development support by DoE and laboratory automation
WÖRWAG develops and produces coatings for automotive and industrial
applications. In order to establish products in this marketplace successfully, numerous process and raw material parameters exist that have to be
evaluated intensively, before trials at customer’s sizes can be performed.
For optimal combinations of raw materials concerning technological and
coloring components, DoEs are used in a very early phase. The technical
execution is assisted by a BOSCH laboratory automation system starting
from raw materials to the final painted test panel.
WÖRWAG uses experimental design in all areas of development. This covers fundamental investigations, screening experiments and special adopted D-optimal designs for process characterization. Therefore Cornerstone
has proved to be a flexible and easy to handle tool to design these experiments and analyze the resulting data.

Cornerstone workflow integration for advanced process data
With version 6.0, Cornerstone has made a big leap towards integration
with other camLine tools (SPACE, iGate) and communication with the noncommercial general statistical package R (R-analysis object). On top, the
integration of Enhanced Cornerstone allows more efficient application of
Cornerstone analysis principles. These new features are life demonstrated
on a real customer dataset of some 30 000 rows by 700 columns.
