BrooksProduct Briefing Outline: Brooks Software has introduced PROMIS 5.8, an upgrade of its PROMIS MES that provides enhancements in the @PROMIS web GUI making it easier to increase productivity and enforce stringent quality controls in the production of precision products. Existing customers using any of the three previous major version releases of PROMIS (5.5, 5.6, and 5.7) will be able to take advantage of all the new features with a single-step upgrade, according to the company.

Problem: Continued performance refining of the MES software and direct customer input and recommendations for new enhancements have become an important aspect for fabs, striving to obtain better cost of ownership and improved productivity within volume production fabs.

Solution: With PROMIS v5.8, the software can now support custom co-operative processing with only configuration data. The result is custom tracking rules with standard software that can be retained across upgrades. New GUI enhancements for performing functions in Task Management have been added as well as a powerful yet low-cost equipment maintenance module, according to the company. The GUI also allows the choice of Equipment-centric or Lot-centric selection, providing the capability for improved fab equipment utilization. A refresh function provides a simple, safe mechanism to update all relevant specifications for a lot, without opening up opportunity for error in part/step selection - significantly reducing the chance of mis-processing. Real-Time Integrator (RTI) - the outbound API - now supports web service calls over HTTP. Besides eliminating the need to purchase traditional middleware, this RTI protocol enables the use of external rules and applications to influence tracking behavior without customizing PROMIS code. Process modeling functions now provide more flexibility to reduce the number of specifications, while allowing more accurate reflection of your real processing needs.

Applications: Discrete manufacturing facilities.

Platform: PROMIS 5.8, an upgrade of PROMIS MES. Users of PROMIS (5.5, 5.6, and 5.7) can make single-step upgrade.

Availability: November 2006 onwards.
