Manufacture with certainty using Bayesian models

Every 18-24 months technology nodes change, making processes more complex and adding time to manufacturing and potentially increasing wafer cost. Accenture understands the struggle and offers a solution to detect early anomalies and apply advanced process control techniques.

The Bayesian approach give solutions that utilize IPQC, sensing technology, and AL powered analytics at the beginning of production. This model also offers robust predictions combining EES and sampling QC data which establish value in predictive maintenance, root cause analysis and other processes that can negatively impact production.
