TowerJazz wins ML100 Award in Operational Excellence category

Specialty foundry TowerJazz (which has fabrication plants at Tower Semiconductor Ltd in Migdal Haemek, Israel, and at its subsidiaries Jazz Semiconductor Inc in Newport Beach, CA, USA and TowerJazz Japan Ltd) has been selected by Frost & Sullivan as a winner of the Manufacturing Leadership 100 Award (ML100 Award). TowerJazz was recognised for implementing radio-frequency identification (RFID) in its production line to improve operational efficiency.

TowerJazz was a winner in the Operational Excellence category which celebrates outstanding projects undertaken and completed by a manufacturing company. Winners in this category have undertaken projects that transform production processes and systems with a view towards reducing costs and enhancing agility, says the firm.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for our operational excellence. Integrating RFID into our Fab 3 semiconductor manufacturing dispatch process has enabled us to substantially increase operating efficiency. This was accomplished by automating tracking steps into the existing Real Time Dispatch (RTD) system and enabling visual location through the integrated LED lights which reduced cycle time and cost,” says TowerJazz’s chief operating officer Ephie Koltin.

Judging criteria for the projects examined how the project transformed key processes and allowed the manufacturing company to add value in new ways, the bottom-line business benefit which resulted from the project, how the project enabled the company’s overall business strategy, to what extent the use of technology was key to enabling the project and how it was deployed in a way that delivered maximum value to the business.
