Online, Central European Summer Time (CEST)


  • Provide insights on the broader impact of high-quality scheduling decisions in semiconductor industries         
  • Discuss traditional heuristic-based scheduling practices versus our new hybrid-mathematical optimization approach 
  • Share the results of a benchmark study that involves nine historical datasets of the metrology toolsets in the Seagate Springtown
  • Discuss the benefits from the application to Seagate so far and our key learnings from the implementation process


About Flexciton:

Flexciton applies cutting-edge technology to optimize the planning and scheduling decisions for the world's most complex manufacturing process - semiconductor wafer fabrication. Utilizing over 10 years of academic research and industrial studies, Flexciton's engineers have developed a hybrid-optimization model aimed at solving the production scheduling problems that were previously unsolvable. Flexciton is a member of and FOA. The company was shortlisted for the Best of West Award at SemiconWest 2020.

About Seagate:

Seagate Technology is a data storage company and the Springtown facility is at the heart of the $25Billion dollar data storage industry. Seagate opened it’s wafer facility in Derry in N. Ireland in 1993. There are only 5 type facilities in the world which we are the largest. Seagate has a second wafer facility in Minnesota which mirrors what we produce here in Derry. The Springtown facility supplies approx. 25% of all read-write heads for hard drives globally.
