dashboard system, focused on improving cycle
time. In real-time, it provides a comprehensive
view of fab performance data - everything you
need for proactive management of cycle time.
FabTime is designed for hands-on use by managers

tools, which were designed for programmers.

operational transactions from the factory
execution system, and processing these
transactions real-time for storage in a database.

viewed using a standard web browser across a
corporate Intranet. FabTime can also be
configured to allow password-protected access via
the Internet. FabTime’s web-based interface
