Due to the global chip shortage, it is essential to use the existing production capacities in an optimal way for maximum output. Automation specialist Fabmatics, headquartered in Dresden, Germany, supplies semiconductor manufacturers worldwide with handling robots. These autonomous robotic systems transport the wafers, which are later used to manufacture chips, to the individual stations in the clean room. In order to further optimize these highly complex logistics processes, Fabmatics would like to offer its customers digital services for process monitoring in the future. In a joint project, Fabmatics, T-Systems MMS, the Smart Systems Hub and Wandelbots developed the prototype for a cloud-based data management platform.
