In the semiconductor manufacturing, implementing shopfloor scheduling and control systems is critical and crucial in maintaining high utilisation of expensive equipment and improving throughput and at the same time performing in a lean environment with low WIP and short cycle time. In order to tackle high work-in-process (WIP) in a semiconductor assembly and test company, an electronic kanban based shopfloor control system has been implemented.
