ToolTrack MES: Your Semiconductor Manufacturing Solution

Semiconductor manufacturers have the unique challenge of achieving peak output while reducing costs for highly complex processes. Many wafer fabrication software systems were built for only the biggest manufacturing companies and were designed for fully automated processing, also known as "lights out" operation. For 95% of semiconductor manufacturers, particularly those focused on a high mix of products, legacy MES software just doesn't work; it's too expensive and far too rigid. Because of this many companies were forced to adopt paper travelers or invest hundreds of thousands of dollars on software that wasn't designed for their needs. ToolTrack MES delivers a manufacturing software solution for any semiconductor process using database technology that is modular and flexible, and it won't break the bank. 

Pitfalls of Paper Travelers

While many manufacturing companies adopt paper travelers or spreadsheets for production tracking in order to save money, they quickly realize the problem with having decentralized silos of information and multiple sources of truth. It becomes increasingly difficult to trace the history of a specific unit and even more difficult to analyze data and chart parametric trends. As soon as you print something... it's inherently out of date. ToolTrack MES enables your business to get away from paper and create a single source of truth that's always up to date. Customizable management dashboards provide up-to-the-second inventory snapshots and operational activity so you'll never have to ask your production supervisor what's going on; you'll already know and they'll be able to focus on solving real problems. At I-Track Software we're all about information visibility and enabling data driven decisions. 

Why I-Track Software?

We provide a flexible solution that fits your operations and grows as you do. This enables your production supervisors, engineers and managers to adjust to the ever-changing manufacturing processes. ToolTrack MES was built by manufacturing industry experts - who won't pass your requirements to an offshore development team - who build your solution using a modular platform where customizing details is easy, quick and less expensive than any other product on the market. You always get unlimited users and your team can create as many custom reports as they need without knowing how to code! I-Track Software allows you to move away from costly legacy systems that lack the flexibility to adapt to changing business requirements, to a solution that gives you a competitive edge. 

How Does I-Track Software Do This?

We've taken a different approach to Manufacturing Execution (MES) and shopfloor control software. Most companies use a legacy architecture with rigid database and application layers which limits the ability for customization. These products often require full time in-house support and slow thin client programs that have to be constantly updated and won't run on mobile devices. But with ToolTrack MES customization is driven by metadata rather than low level source code. Plus, ToolTrack MES utilizes a fast web-based user interface so you can access it anywhere, on any device. 

The flexible modeling and extensive configuration options in ToolTrack MES allow your manufacturing software to be quickly tailored without expensive programming. Multiple facilities can maintain a level of autonomy while leveraging a single MES solution. If custom program logic is needed, the new functionality can be implemented once and be immediately available to all users without disrupting operations or re-certifying the application.
