  • Anomaly detection

Challenge

As semiconductor chip demand surges, semiconductor equipment faces increasing functional demands, complicating the production process and leading to unforeseen equipment failures. This complexity necessitates advanced predictive maintenance technologies capable of preempting these failures.

Approach

Our AI deep learning model was meticulously trained on extensive datasets, encompassing a broad spectrum of sensor data from semiconductor production equipment. This training enabled the model to master the recognition of standard operational patterns and to accurately identify deviations indicative of potential failures. Upon detecting an anomaly, the model not only estimated the time until potential failure but also conducted a thorough analysis to ascertain the root cause of the deviation. This dual-capability approach allowed for a more nuanced understanding of equipment behavior, facilitating preemptive maintenance strategies.

Results

The model achieved a breakthrough in predictive accuracy, forecasting anomalies 12 to 24 hours before occurrence with a false positive rate of over 90%. This capability enabled a proactive maintenance response, significantly reducing machine downtime.
