ChipMOS Optimizes Testing and Packaging With Award-Winning RFID Solutions
Like most semiconductor manufacturing companies, ChipMOS has invested significant amounts of money to build and maintain state-of-the-art foundries. However, the company did not have a centralized area to store finished products, but kept inventory in different areas of individual plants. During the biannual stock take and the monthly routine inventory count, staff spent hours locating and counting items scattered across the plant. This situation made it difficult for ChipMOS to know the exact amount of stock it was holding. After a series of discussions, senior management teams decided to adopt an RFID solution. The solution, dubbed the Wafer Testing Real-time Update Information System, was developed using Oracle middleware products, including Oracle SOA Suite.
