Achieve semiconductor quality excellence with a closed loop approach

Estimated Watching Time: 57 minutes


Achieve semiconductor quality excellence - close up image of a semiconductor chip

One of the main difficulties currently facing our industry is the customer's expectations, meeting a higher criterion for semiconductor quality. Using legacy processes makes this endeavor formidable. However, implementation of a digital transformation, that includes closed-loop strategy, can streamline development, boost productivity and maintain quality.

In this upcoming webinar, Siemens specialists will discuss:

  • Why closed-loop quality management must be part of your digital transformation strategy
  • Aligned workflows for quality to promote collaboration between teams
  • How a PLM-native QMS ensures quality from the start, saving time and money

Register for this upcoming webinar to find out how a closed-loop approach has advantages.

Understanding the challenges of semiconductor quality management

The semiconductor industry is experiencing rapid evolution on a global scale. Shifting market demand, increasing competitive pressures and resource constraints have illuminated existing weaknesses and deficits within semiconductor manufacturing. Continuous improvement of your core processes is the only viable option in this unpredictable, changing market. Without a comprehensive digital transformation, including a closed-loop methodology, the quality of the final product may take multiple iterations, take longer to produce, cost more and be riddled with defects. Frustrated consumers will look elsewhere for their electronic and/or electronic component needs, causing businesses to lag behind the competition.

The benefits of harmonizing semiconductor quality across the product lifecycle

Adjusting to complex, dynamic integrated circuit (IC) markets requires a closed-loop quality strategy. With a closed-loop quality management approach, you can directly:

  • Employ PLM - QMS solutions to streamline your value chain to deliver increasingly complex goods.
  • Synchronize the management of semiconductor quality over the whole product lifecycle, from conception to delivery.
  • Use QMS and PLM tools in a single collaborative platform to create high-quality devices
  • Exceed targets throughout manufacturing, pleasing consumers with reliable and high-quality products.
  • Manage data easily between domains so teams can design products properly the first time, enhance NPIs, save costs, and innovate for a competitive advantage.

Harnessing the power of QMS and PLM in semiconductor manufacturing

Quality management systems address nonconformity, complaints, root-cause investigation and risk minimization. Siemens Closed-Loop quality management system meets industrial standards. Maintain industry-leading regulatory compliance, quality and operational efficiency while meeting all criteria and offering our clients an edge.

PLM maintains all product data, including bill of materials (BOMs), revision history, and change management. Siemens PLM, a 3D software development toolkit, provides modeling, sketching, assembly, path planning, interoperability and visualization to boost innovation, reduce expenses and decrease time spent. Important in the production of semiconductors considering their need for increased power in a reduced space.

Implementing native QMS tools on a collaborative PLM platform ensures that crucial information for revising or improving new product development is easily available.
