Semi-conductor Device


Understanding of the Industry

Key Issues of Semi-conductor Equipment Issues
Difficult to manage project progress and important role of PM
Lack of actual profit and loss management and lack of cost management for each project
Difficulty in managing BOM change – PLM Interface
Need to manage processed products and outsourced customers
Mixed sales processing of performance obligation 1 (delivery basis) and performance obligation 2 (percent of completion) according to application of IFRS 1115
Difficulty in calculating the cost of sales for multiple machines in one project
Difficulty in inventory management and unit price calculation for each project

Features of Semi-conductor Device Industry
It takes the form of an order-based industry, and projects are carried out for at least several months to several years
It is not easy to manage materials, manpower, etc. that going into one project, and it is necessary to calculate the cost for each project
Semiconductor business and market conditions increase investment/equipment in semiconductor equipment and lead to increase in equipment industry sales
High dependence on semiconductor manufacturing industry
The growth engine of the high-tech industry
Although it is different for each semiconductor equipment, it is replaced with new equipment every 3-5 years (upgrade of equipment due to industrial development, etc)

Semi-conductor Device Industry Issues & Solutions

Utilization of surplus inventory – cost reduction by putting it in new equipment

  • Display common stock of items requested for purchase in the field
  • Project (LOT) replacement processing and input processing of available inventory

Project BOM management and standardization through PLM linkage

  • Real-time sharing of design and design change (EC) information through PLM & ERP interface
  • Efficient sharing of drawings & simplification of design change (EC) processing procedures

Business and system advancement (SCM) for purchasing/logistics efficiency

  • Step-by-step process management between purchase/outsourcing through SCM
  • Sharing information with suppliers (parts information, delivery date, quality, etc)

Advancement of business plan & budget management to achieve business goals

  • Version management according to business (order) plan changes
  • (Sales) Order Forecast (Plan) and Order (Result) Management

Calculation of manufacturing cost and cost of sales for each equipment belonging to one project

  • Establishment of a process capable of calculating the cost of sales by project unit number

Accurate communication with purchasing and outsourcing customers through SCM

  • Organic information sharing with partners through SCM (quotation, purchase order, inspection, GR)

Calculation of reasonable cost by integrating GR/GI and unit price calculation by project

  • It provides a function to identify all GR/GI by project for materials purchased in each project, a function to substitute project materials, and unit cost calculation for materials of each project
