TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, life sciences, medical device, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced today the general availability of version 5.2 of its Eyelit Manufacturing™ and Eyelit Semiconductor Edition™ suites of software, which are running in production at several of its customers’ sites.
“These new powerful capabilities are a testament to the value of collaboration with our customers”
Eyelit Manufacturing version 5.2 and Semiconductor Edition version 5.2 feature many product enhancements developed in collaboration with Eyelit’s customers, which are implementing large-scale factory automation projects. Automation requirements drove major enhancements to equipment reservation and data collection. A Run-to-Run (R2R) integration template is introduced and utilizes the Eyelit Recipe Management System™ (RMS) and the Eyelit FactoryConnect™ module for integration with external Advanced Process Control (APC) controllers and equipment. This enables dynamic adjustment of equipment processing through feed-forward controls to help extend the time between preventive maintenance tasks to increase throughput. Significant enhancements to the Eyelit Special Processing/SWR™ module simplify experimentation and adjustments through the Eyelit RMS module, which enables users to refine processes and products more rapidly and effectively.
Many new automation-related features in the Eyelit Advanced Dispatching™ module help to lower operational costs, reduce cycle time and increase throughput. Highlights are configurable dispatching criteria, such as batch consideration of future arrivals, support for custom rules, and factors for consideration of transfer time, tool costs, queue time, and recipe management. New efficiency features in the Eyelit Asset Management™ module support additional automation scenarios involving in-line tools and concurrent processing of material contained in a lot and in multiple tools, without the need to split the lot in the MES module.
“These new powerful capabilities are a testament to the value of collaboration with our customers,” stated Dan Estrada, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. “Many of these features were driven by customers that migrated to Eyelit from Camstar, Applied Materials (FactoryWorks, PROMIS and WorkStream), and IBM (SiView) legacy systems. They recognized that Eyelit’s software enables them to dramatically reduce their overall costs and the number of systems required. As customers modernize their systems, Eyelit’s footprint is extended well beyond a traditional MES.”
