Osram chooses Vistrian's computer-integrated manufacturing software for Malaysia fab

To provide improved visibility and accountability to its processes and equipment, optoelectronics manufacturer Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany has selected and recently implemented FactoryLOOK manufacturing intelligence software from Vistrian Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA to support manufacturing operations in its wafer fabrication plant in Penang, Malaysia.  

"Osram Opto Semiconductors is committed to offering the most innovative, trend-setting technologies for illumination, visualization and sensing and, as such, the company is constantly launching new technologies and products," says Vistrian's CEO Ronald Allen. "As a result they are always looking at methods to reduce costs & time to market, improving factory productivity and ensuring process compliance," he adds. "FactoryLOOK gives them the visibility and accountability information they need to do just that with just a few clicks, very little training and without the need for third-party software integrators," he claims.   

"Our goal was to implement a world-class wafer fab with adequate controls to ensure the right part gets processed at the right machine with the right recipe by the right operator," says Dr Roland Mueller, Osram Opto Semiconductors' VP & general manager. "We were pleased to find a partner in Vistrian to provide us just such a solution in a cost-effective and turn-key manner,” he adds.

Vistrian’s FactoryLOOK software monitors, alerts and correlates manufacturer’s data while tracking the customer’s manufacturing processes. The software works together seamlessly to provide cohesive, multi-screen views of the entire production process, presenting this data in easy to understand dashboards. Virtually all of the information required by the customer in their process can be accessed with just a few clicks, in real-time from any networked monitor or secure web browser. The software’s easy to use monitoring and alerting technology helps companies manage their production closely and consistently.
