In the semiconductor manufacturing business, you face a difficult mix of conflicting pressures such as capital-intensive processes, lengthy manufacturing and planning cycles, high mix of end-items, yield issues and volatile demand. In addition, complex and expensive pieces of equipment such as Steppers and Testers as well as mask requirements and set-up issues, require accurate modeling of the machinery and resources. From foundries to assembly-and-test plants, to fabless production, you need to lower costs, increase customer service, and gain a higher return-on-assets. Adexa’s solutions have been in use in 19 of the top 25 semiconductor companies (including fabless) worldwide; as well as almost every foundary in the world. Adexa’s solutions are used at every level of supply chain planning from fabrication line and back-end planning to demand planning and supply chain planning.
Let Adexa show you how to meet these challenges:
Optimize Resource Investments — Compare your financial KPIs and tie them into operational KPIs to ensure your organization responds to opportunities and threats in a timely manner.
Stabilize Demand Planning — Integrate demand data from multiple sources including OEMs, subcontractors, and distributors into reliable consensus forecasts in real-time.
Reduce Inventory Exposure — Extend visibility across the supply chain to optimize the use of die bank inventory and increase flexibility in response to short-term demand fluctuations.
Build the “Virtual Factory” — Fabless manufacturers can optimize capacity and lead times by generating a virtual factory to model and manage global resources as a single integrated supply chain.
Synchronize Multi-Site Production — Establish a common language for capturing data and feeding decisions back to varied legacy systems and shop floor applications.
Enable Collaboration — Deliver better information faster so trading partners can react quicker to changes in the supply chain, helping to reduce inventories and increase customer responsiveness.
Measure, Monitor, Notify, and Adjust — Use hundreds of pre-built, audit-ready/approved KPIs across all departments and roles to stay continuously informed about all aspects of production.

» Why Lot Release is So Important in Semiconductor Manufacturing
If I arrive on-time or early at the airport but there is a problem with the airplane and delay in the scheduled takeoff time, does it get me to my destination on time? Clearly the answer is No! Is it better for me to stay in the comfort of my home and go when I know the plane is ready to take off? Or even better, find another means of getting to my destination so that I get there on time.

In this ePaper, we first explore how the use of product attributes can simplify your planning environment. Then we review the major differentiating requirements for the top Semi-planning processes, including Demand, Inventory, Operations, Supply, and Available-to-Promise planning stages.
» Achieving World-class Fabless Planning
Fabless semiconductor companies can achieve higher revenues, lower inventory, and lower operating costs by putting in place best-in-class supply chain planning processes and technologies. This in turn has a direct impact on the financial performance of the company in terms of profitability, margins and return on assets.
By performing better on-time delivery, using Adexa planning applications, Hynix improved its market share by a notable amount.

Adding Value to Best Supply Chains in Every Industry
Adexa has the most comprehensive planning solutions in the industry. In addition to S&OP, Adexa offers S&OE (Sales and Operations Execution). The latter ensures that plans are accurate and can be implemented rather than most high level plans that are offered by S&OP vendors. Our solutions combine Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), Supply Chain Planning, Demand Planning, Factory Planning and sequencing, ATP/CTP, Network Optimization, and Multi Echelon Inventory Optimization (MEIO) all combined in Adexa’s unique architecture of unified data model. To this end, we form financial, supply and operation plans and then transform them into execution plans to ensure their accuracy. Almost all Adexa customers produce plans that are very close to perfection in the high 90%s.
For more than 2 decades we have delivered the most innovative solutions such as Attribute-based planning and intelligent self-repairing supply chain© planning technology exclusive only to Adexa. Attribute-Based Planning (APB) enables the solution to be flexible to fit any business model. After all, it is your unique process that makes you competitive in your industry. If every company used the so called “Best in Class” solutions, then the competitive edge is gone. APB also, cuts the implementation time in half and allows the solution to change with your business without having to hire IT personnel to adapt the new rules and business changes to your existing solutions as your business environment changes. All of Adexa solutions are available on the premise as well as on the cloud. In addition, we have pre-built turn-key integration packages with many ERP, MES and other enterprise software packages that are currently in use.
Our partnering philosophy is a key reason why we are able to deliver state-of-the-art supply chain and collaborative e-business planning solutions to innovative companies in every industry we serve. We work with our customers closely to understand their business pains and craft products addressing their unique requirements.
