Title
(EN) TIME CONSTRAINT MANAGEMENT AT A MANUFACTURING SYSTEM
(FR) GESTION DE CONTRAINTE TEMPORELLE AU NIVEAU D'UN SYSTÈME DE FABRICATION
Abstract
(EN) A method for time constraint management at a manufacturing system is provided. A first request to initiate a set of operations to be run at the manufacturing system is received. The set of operations include one or more operations that each have one or more time constraints. A first set of candidate substrates to be processed during the set of operations is determined. A first simulation of the set of operations for the first set of candidate substrates is run over a first period of time. The simulation generates a first simulation output indicate a first number of candidate substrates that were successfully processed during each of the simulated set of operations to reach the end of the first time period. The set of operations is initiated at the manufacturing system to process the first number of candidate substrates over the first time period.
(FR) L'invention concerne une gestion de contrainte temporelle au niveau d'un système de fabrication. Une première demande d'initiation d'un ensemble d'opérations à exécuter au niveau du système de fabrication est reçue. L'ensemble d'opérations comprend une ou plusieurs opérations qui ont individuellement une ou plusieurs contraintes temporelles. Un premier ensemble de substrats candidats à traiter pendant l'ensemble d'opérations est déterminé. Une première simulation de l'ensemble d'opérations du premier ensemble de substrats candidats est exécutée sur une première période de temps. La simulation génère une première sortie de simulation indiquant un premier nombre de substrats candidats qui ont été traités avec succès pendant chaque opération de l'ensemble simulé d'opérations jusqu'à atteindre la fin de la première période de temps. L'ensemble d'opérations est initié au niveau du système de fabrication de façon à traiter le premier nombre de substrats candidats sur la première période de temps.
