2018FLEX - Presenter and Session Sponsor

"Moving towards high-volume manufacturing with standards"

Flexible & Printed Electronics Conference & Exhibition
Location: Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa, Monterey, California
Date: Thursday, February 15, 2018
Time: 9:25-9:45am
Agenda: http://www.semi.org/en/2018flex-agenda
Sponsor: PEER Group is the proud sponsor of the “Standards and Reliability” session on February 15

Abstract:
Revolutionary advances in flexible electronics hold the promise of producing innovative new products at lower cost than traditional methods. However, the gap between prototype production and high-volume manufacturing (HVM) can be daunting. How can you ensure that you have the infrastructure in place to move your process from the laboratory to the complexities and uncertainties of real-world manufacturing, especially in a smart factory? Fortunately, lessons learned in the semiconductor manufacturing industry provide clear guidance for making the move towards full automation and standardized data collection and material handling.

This presentation reviews the fundamental requirements for making the transition from pilot process to implementation inside a modern production facility and value chain. We’ll discuss design patterns and standards for automation, big data collection and security that you can implement now to help simplify future sales to demanding customers. We’ll also introduce a path for taking your HVM to the next level: introducing essential concepts for realizing smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0. Modern analytics can be used to monitor a fleet of deployed equipment to find opportunities for improvement (e.g., enabling predictive maintenance to reduce unplanned equipment downtime). However, this can only work if the collected data is consolidated securely into a central location. The basic data collection infrastructure we recommend paves the way for a complete, secure remote connectivity and data sharing solution that provides equipment makers and manufacturers a powerful new and secure way to collaborate.

"A systematic approach to secure data collection across an OEM's fleet of tools"

Location: Saratoga Springs, NY
Date: Tuesday, May 1, 2018
Time: 5:15-6:45pm, Session 5

Abstract
This paper discusses the approaches the PEER Group team took to design and implement a secure data management system to collect data from tools installed at fabs in different geographic locations and to move that data to a cloud-based storage system. The motivation for our work was to find the best way to match equipment performance across a global fleet of tools using modern analytics for predictive decision-making. However, gathering the data and feeding it into remote analytics software to perform fleet-wide comparisons presents familiar obstacles related to IP protection, the management of big data, and implementation risk. The majority of the effort in creating such a data collection system did not lie in the movement of the data, but rather in the systematic identification and assessment of objections to data sharing in a notoriously secretive industry. By explicitly addressing each of the concerns related to secure data sharing, PEER Group was able to create a system that allowed for limited collection of data in a means acceptable to all stakeholders.

Doug Suerich, Product Evangelist 
“Case Study: Smart Manufacturing Lessons Learned in Electronics, Life Sciences, and Semiconductor Industries” 

Smart Manufacturing Innovation Summit
Location: Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York, NY
Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Time: 3:00-3:30pm

Abstract
Advanced manufacturers operate under relentless pressure to reduce costs while maintaining and – in many cases – increasing quality and throughput. Smart manufacturing provides a solution to these challenges by harnessing the power of big data and predictive analytics to streamline manufacturing processes and improve decision making. This discussion outlines two case studies that provide clear lessons learned from smart manufacturing implementations in the electronics and life science industries. An investigation into the smart manufacturing practices of the semiconductor industry highlights the role that standards can play in reducing the cost and time required to implement a smart manufacturing solution.

Location: TechSPOT West
Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Time: 13:40-14:30

Abstract:
Cloud computing promises new methods for process optimization. But, in an industry that is historically risk averse and security-conscious, many companies still hesitate to use the cloud. Our case study discusses how we leveraged the cloud’s speed, security, and cost advantages for data analytics.
