SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions Co.,Ltd.

New Design Evaluation System

Upholding a fundamental policy of providing products and services that are in compliance with all relevant rules and regulations and ensuring safe and accident-free operation, SCREEN Semiconductor Solutions evaluates product safety in accordance with SEMI S2 Standards (a set of semiconductor production equipment safety guidelines), the EU Machinery Directive, and the company’s own internal standards.
In 2013, the company introduced a D-Loop (DL) project management system to manage development at each stage, including decision making, testing, and output. The system employs the Stress Strength Model SSM to reinforce all Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA)/Design of Experiments (DOE) processes for the ex-ante evaluation of risk at the development stage. The company has now expanded the adoption of this system to completely cover both development and engineered-to-order projects, measuring progress toward design completion using DL-Score.
Furthermore, the company is working to increase response precision and reduce lead times for major projects to increase customer satisfaction by revising its risk management workflow with the introduction of customer-centered FMEA using customer field data.
A model in which mechanisms that could cause problems in products or processes are structurally mapped for reuse in future designs and plans.

Quality-Related Function Improvement Evaluation System

The company uses internal quality audit check sheets when conducting annual internal audits of each department. In fiscal 2016, ended March 31, 2016, the internal audits included PDCA cycle checks focused on management and processes to promote effective quality improvement initiatives.
