About FabTime

FabTime Inc. is the first company to focus solely on the challenging problem of cycle time management for semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities. We believe that the cycle time problems faced by wafer fabs are uniquely difficult and that our customers will be well-served by a company that declares its focus and sticks to it. To that end, we offer cycle time management software and training, as well as a newsletter dedicated to discussing best practices for fab cycle time improvement. FabTime’s management team has been working with fabs since 1993. FabTime is based in San Jose and San Luis Obispo, California.

About Cycle Time Management

Time is money. This is especially true in the fast-paced and complex environment of a semiconductor wafer fabrication facility. In a wafer fab:
bullet Long cycle times are directly related to large work-in-process (WIP) inventories.
bullet Long cycle times have been associated with increased yield losses.
bullet Long cycle times make a factory less flexible in accepting orders, and less able to accept short turnaround orders.
bullet Long cycle times are usually less predictable cycle times.
bullet Long cycle times lead to increased numbers of “hot lots”, which in turn increases variability, and drives up cycle times further. 
bullet Long cycle times lead to unhappy customers. This is the most costly consequence of all.
