SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 20. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PDF Solutions (NASDAQ:PDFS) today announced its collaboration with SAP® SE to connect factory data, including data collected and managed by its Exensio® analytics platform, to enterprise resource planning (ERP) data in SAP S/4HANA® to enable greater efficiency in semiconductor manufacturing. This connection from the “top floor” to the “workshop” will be realized by PDF Solutions’ new Sapience™ Manufacturing Hub. The expected result of this collaboration is a better financial understanding based on the analysis of manufacturing data, which results in a more accurate profitability analysis, increased revenues and reduced costs.
“Our customers are looking for more ways to leverage their process and product data as part of their Industry 4.0 initiatives,” said Kimon Michaels, Executive Vice President, Products and Solutions at PDF Solutions. “Collaborating with SAP was a logical step for us because of the complementary synergies within our organizations. The Sapience Manufacturing Hub is designed to provide companies using SAP solutions direct access to new sources of data that can be correlated with existing ERP data, providing unique insights to help our mutual customers achieve sustainable profitability in the manufacture of semiconductors.
As more companies adopt Industry 4.0 strategies, one of the challenges organizations face is the ability to easily connect financial and operational data in meaningful ways, which can provide visibility into the relationships between the supply chain and the workshop with the ERP. It can be difficult for organizations to easily visualize the cause and effect relationships between these data sources, resulting in limited financial insight into areas such as manufacturing waste, capacity or usage, and their impact on the company’s profitability.
“Collaborating with PDF Solutions will allow us to accelerate the Industry 4.0 transformations happening today in the semiconductor and electronics ecosystem,” said Jeff Howell, global vice president and head of of the High-Tech Industry business unit at SAP. “For companies that still control their own semiconductor manufacturing, the Sapience Manufacturing Hub will provide business visibility that delivers additional ROI from the data they already collect and store, but don’t use. to their full potential.”
