Global fleet management for OEMs

Kitchener, Ontario - June 26, 2017 

Enable your equipment for the smart factory of the future

The theme of SEMICON West 2017 is “Smart Starts Here” and the best place to start is at PEER Group’s Booth 5250 where you can play with a live software demonstration of our smart manufacturing solution.

Global fleet management

“You already know that our EIB® and PTO® products enable equipment connectivity and advanced tool automation, and collect vast amounts of data from the largest pieces of equipment down to the tiniest sensors. But, you may not know that our products can feed data from a fab into any remote analytics package, allowing you to take a deep look at what is happening on your deployed tools,” says Bill Schmalz, VP of sales at PEER Group. 

In the live demo, you’ll learn how our products allow you to:

  • Monitor performance across your entire fleet of tools
  • Detect potential problems easily 
  • Resolve issues rapidly
  • Make predictive decisions
  • Minimize downtime 
  • Optimize your tools for maximum efficiency     

Work smarter

The ability to analyze your data and collaborate on your tools from anywhere on the planet means OEMs can work smarter. At SEMICON West, we’ll show you how PEER Group products work with analytics software, using the BISTel Manufacturing Intelligence (MI) Platform as an example.

“Because of the amount of data OEMs generate, analytics software like BISTel’s MI Platform can predict equipment failures faster than manual observation and human investigation,” says Thurston Taylor, Director of Service, Global Services at BISTel, Inc.  

“Our live demonstration will show you how an engineer at OEM headquarters utilizes our Remicus™ remote connectivity product to compare data collected from their entire fleet of tools. You’ll see how he detects a potential problem on one tool, then uses Remicus to collaborate with a technician in the fab. Together, they will troubleshoot the issue and then – in real time – alter the equipment data they want to collect and monitor remotely so they can ensure the problem never impacts throughput,” Schmalz continues.

Our smart manufacturing solution will help you provide enhanced service to your fab customers and ensure better, more cost-effective support on your tools under warranty.
