Digital transformation opportunities and challenges for smart semiconductor manufacturing

With electronic components increasingly used across multiple industries, semiconductor manufacturers have unprecedented growth opportunities today.

At the same time, there is an explosion of market, product, and supply chain complexities that can present challenges to keeping up with such growth. A comprehensive digital transformation approach is necessary to harness this complexity for a competitive advantage.

A great place to start is with smart semiconductor manufacturing, including digital solutions for planning, scheduling, execution, and quality. PLM systems can help integrate these digital solutions to provide optimizations of fab utilization, efficiency and flexibility in managing change to help enterprises maximize their growth.

Smart semiconductor manufacturing: The comprehensive digital twin, digital threads and shift left

Digital transformation concepts and terms can be confusing and are often misused.

  • Digital twin: a virtual model of an actual process, product or service occurring in the physical world

  • Digital thread: multiple digital twins woven together across an enterprise

  • Shift left: Pushing product verification and manufacturing validation earlier in the product lifecycle to reduce costly changes later
