Process Relations Introduces XperiDesk 2011.1
Product News Jan 24, 2011
Process Relations has launched the latest version of its XperiDesk Process Development Execution System (PDES) software. XperiDesk 2011.1 delivers a new graphical DoE definition and tracking capability, together with a complete new file loading client.
These additional tools combined with the improved Excel im- and export capabilities of the XperiDesk system, give engineers even more time to focus on tackling the challenges involved with what-if process development, rather than focusing on data collection and management.
The new graphical Design of Experiment definition and tracking capabilities of the XperiDesk suite allow for a much better oversight when defining experiments, their splits and merges. Tools for the detailed planning and the recording of the actual experiment progress are now seamlessly integrated. Observations and other remarks can be collected and provide for means to accumulate development progress information and meta-data as well as detailed measurement data.
Managing the Work In Progress (WIP) and reporting on it becomes effortless, reports can be generated with a button click. This allows management and engineering to directly investigate deviations from plans and expectations immediately and not days or weeks after the fact. The graphical representation with its customizable views allows for the easy oversight as well as enabling the easy drill-down into the detailed manufacturing conditions and comments.
The newly introduced file loading client is capable of automatically importing files into XperiDesk and integrating them into the information network. Images, research reports, and all other documents can now be found in the context of the experiments, wafers and lots, no longer searching for the correct file or file version on one of the corporate file servers.
The full context of every data point is kept, knowledge extraction from experiments and report generation becomes straightforward. Together with the newly introduced DoE definition module, the management of all experimental data is now improved tremendously.
Jens Popp, VP Product Management of Process Relations commented, “We are constantly working with our clients to improve our XperiDesk software. This is to ensure that engineers can spent their time in the most effective way and enjoy a smoother and more productive development cycle. Removing mundane tasks and focusing the engineers on taking well-informed decisions is our priority. The incorporation of the graphical DoE definition and tracking streamlines the experiment definition and control as well as it improves visibility and oversight. For our customers we believe that these new capabilities will have great impact in their development productivity.”
