  • Topic: Perspectives of Supplier Relationship Management

The current chief global economic concern affecting nearly every industry and global region is supply continuity and supply chain resiliency. The COVID 19 global pandemic has revealed serious cracks in the global supply structure and the lack of readiness in many of the largest and most important global companies. The extended supply chains complexity and often limited capacity make this particularly true in the global semiconductor industry, resulting in a global chip crisis. Short term thinking and actions have created this problem, and despite the flurry of problem solving activity – short term responses will not correct this problem.

In place of reactive escalations, desperately chasing elusive capacity, or irrationally demanding increased supply; long term supplier relationship management and associated actions are key to identifying and remedying this complex issue. Unfortunately, many industries are incapable or unwilling to embrace and deploy to advanced procurement, sourcing, and supply chain strategies. World-class supply and procurement strategies take a back seat to the technology drivers at the helm of most semiconductor related companies.

Dr. Wincel will examine the challenges facing the semiconductor industry’s sourcing and procurement organizations, and how a commitment to long term supplier relationship management is key to bringing the semiconductor sourcing activities into a more modern, comprehensive and competitive state.

Supply chains have seen the most significant disruption in modern history the past 12 months. This could not have been predicted or foreseen but the way we collectively have reacted to the crisis could have been a response through a strategic lens. This is actually an opportunity to vision the future desired business relationship and create shareholder value through strategic vs the transactional opportunistic mindset so often portrayed by individuals and companies in a crisis.

  • Topic: Introducing Smart Scheduling in Front-end Manufacturing for Improved Cycle Time Management

The semiconductor supply chain is a lengthy and complex operation. At the end of it, some of the global manufacturers rely on timely chip supply to meet their production targets. Front-end manufacturing is where semiconductor companies can either gain or lose in a battle of efficient lead time. Since wafer fabrication involves thousands of process steps, even minor operational changes can result in disproportionate effects on the KPIs, including lead time.

Flexciton applies an advanced ultra optimization technology to schedule the front-end manufacturing, regardless of wafer fab size or product mix complexity. We developed this system to handle all constraints found in a fab. It analyzes thousands of data points from the fab’s manufacturing execution system every and every 3 minutes generates an optimized schedule. The schedules are objective-driven, typically aiming at decreasing cycle times and improving throughput. Some of the results from the recent deployment will be presented during the webinar.
