FabTime Cycle Time Management Software

Turn fab data into information and save time and money

Are your supervisors swamped with daily reports, but lacking real-time information?
Is it difficult to link equipment performance to cycle time?
Does each new cycle time analysis require IT resources?

FabTime can help. FabTime offers a commercially proven (more than 30 active customer sites) web-based digital 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 and supervisors, unlike traditional reporting tools, which were designed for programmers.

FabTime works by taking a continuous feed of operational transactions from the factory execution system, and processing these transactions real-time for storage in a database. Outputs (including charts and tables) can be 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 minimizes installation and training costs, and its comprehensive security model enables controlled system access for a wide factory audience. FabTime also includes the documentation, help, and customer support that you would expect from a commercial system (click here for details).

FabTime is a small company. This allows FabTime’s employees to get to know you personally, and to exceed your expectations on a regular basis.
