If you’ve ever looked closely at some of the electronic components in your equipment, you may wonder how the tiny microchip within these components gets made. CyOptics, Inc., a longtime leader in the semiconductor industry, manufactures these minuscule circuits. The company’s fabrication process involves complex steps using machinery and equipment to create the layers and features of each microchip.
To accomplish this work, CyOptics executives required metrics showing them precisely where its maintenance and production outputs were improving or declining. Prior to implementing eMaint in 2017, the company’s maintenance team had no systematic way to collect or analyze the data. With the CMMS in place, team members now have the data to identify increases in maintenance and production efficiency and areas where the workflow needs improvement. Additionally, management is provided a real-time, snapshot view of production activity.
