An Advanced Planning and Scheduling solution is designed to allocate resources to manufacture products in the most efficient way possible.
A Capacity Allocation Planning System solution is a headquarters-level “single installation, multiple sites” solution that is designed to enable an organisation to centrally manage its capacity planning process based on relevant information such as forecasts, product attributes, machine and tooling inventory and capability, resource processing rate and utilisation across all of its manufacturing facilities regardless of the facilities’ physical location. It centralises capacity planning and standardises capacity methodologies to generate accurate, reliable and realistic planning reSUlting in shorter time planning calculation cycle from days to hours, and faster response to customers’ demand change,
Discrete manufacturing refers to a manufacturing process in which the output can be measured as distinct units, rather than by weight or volume. These prodUCts can also be labelled and tracked individually. Semiconductors and electronic devices are examples of products that are manufactured by discrete manufacturing.
In general, an Equipment Automation solution is designed to collect, store, manage and process data captured from the diverse range of manufacturing and inspection equipment installed at an individual production line or in a complete manufacturing plant.
In general, an Enterprise Resource Planning solution is an IT-based platform that is designed to electronically capture, store, manage and process information.
A handler is a robotic device that is used to automatically place a semiconductor device that is being tested onto an Automatic Test EqUipment (ATE) testing system.
Information technology refers to the use of technologies and equipment such as computers and peripherals, storage devices, software, and communications equipment to capture, process, disseminate and display information in various forms inclUding text, sound, and images.
A Java Message Service is a Java Message Oriented Middleware (MOM) application programming interface for sending messages between two (2) or more clients. JMS is a part of the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition, and is defined by a specification developed under the Java Community Process as JSR 914. It is a messaging standard that allows application components based on the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) to create, send, receive, and read messages. It allows the communication between different components of a distributed application to be loosely coupled, reliable, and asynchronous.
In general, a Manufacturing Execution System solution is an IT-based platform that is designed to manage manufacturing operations.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness is a methodology for assessing process capacity and utilisation of equipment. It takes into account availability, efficiency and quality, Overall Equipment Effectiveness measurement is also commonly used as a key performance indicator in conjunction with lean manufacturing efforts to provide an indicator of success,

GLOSSARY OF TECHNICAL TERMS (Cont’d)
“Recipe Management System” or “RMS”
“Statistical Process Control” or “SPC”
“Visual Management System” or “VMS”
Process manufacturing refers to a manufacturing process in which the output is measured by weight or volume. Petroleum refining, chemical production, pharmaceutical production, and food processing are examples of process manufacturing.
Within the context of this report, the term “recipe” may refer to the set of formulations, steps and processes that are used to produce a certain product.
In general, a Recipe Management System solution is designed to manage the recipes used in a manufacturing plant.
In general, a Statistical Process Control solution is designed to apply statistical methods to monitor and control a manufacturing operation to ensure that it operates at its fUll potential to produce products that conform with specifications.
A tester is used to electrically test semiconductor devices to identify good or bad units, as well as its product classification information.
In general, a Visual Management System solution is designed to present data in a visual format.
