Dimatix, Inc. Goes Live with Eyelit's MES Solution, Realizes Significant Cycle-Time Reduction for MEMS Operations

July 27, 2005
SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing management software developer and provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the electronics, life sciences, and semiconductor industries, announced today that Dimatix, Inc., the leading MEMS developer and manufacturer of piezoelectric ink-jet printheads and related consumables, has gone live with Eyelit's Manufacturing Software.

Dimatix saw a dramatic reduction in both their R & D and production cycle-times shortly after the implementation of Eyelit's manufacturing solution. Cycle-time, a critical measure for Dimatix, has a direct impact on the bottom line and on Dimatix's ability to quickly verify cause and effects of design changes. By improving this ability to move design changes into volume production sooner, Dimatix is now able bring products to market faster.

Now with a view into historical processing data, Dimatix is able to quickly analyze wafer fab processing data for process characterization and optimization. This translates to improved process stability and yield improvement. In addition, Dimatix can take completed assembly modules and correlate results back to specific events in the wafer fabrication process. This is critical for any combined wafer fab and assembly facility.

Eyelit's solution was implemented in just four weeks. In this short period, operators were tracking production lots in Eyelit Manufacturing™, and realizing substantial gains in overall efficiency. The implemented Eyelit Manufacturing™ solution includes the MES, Equipment Tracking, SPC (Statistical Process Control), KPIs (Key Performance Indicators), and Executive Dashboards.

"We are very pleased by the results we have achieved with Eyelit's solution. The cycle-time improvements alone are very exciting. We could not have scaled production without an MES because of the inherent complexity in our processes. We now have visibility into our many complex processes," stated Ross Stovall, Director of Wafer Operations for Dimatix, Inc.

"These measurable results speak for themselves. This is a remarkable example of the benefits and value of Eyelit Manufacturing™. By improving time to market and operational efficiency, critical to today's high-tech companies, our customers are improving their competitive positions and bottom line. Eyelit has become the only vendor capable of delivering such a broad solution in such a short period of time. We can accomplish what typically takes competing solutions years and millions of dollars in a fraction of the time and cost. In the Dimatix example, our competitors would still be defining the project scope. This is just one of the benefits of an out-of-the-box application like Eyelit Manufacturing," remarked Dan Estrada, Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Eyelit.
