This work presents an advanced e-manufacturing model with four core components: the MES, EES, SC, and EC. The definitions, missions, primary issues, and the corresponding implementation frameworks associated with these four components are described and surveyed. Each component plays a pivotal role in the advanced e-manufacturing model. The MES improves productivity and yield, the EES enhances OEE, the SC shortens the O2 cycle, and the EC reduces the T2M cycle time. With e-manufacturing, overall capabilities including productivity, yield, and OEE of the complete production platform can be improved, and the T2M and O2D cycles can be shortened. Furthermore, the goals of agility, efficiency, and decision making for the entire semiconductor manufacturing processes can be improved. We believe that e-manufacturing will accomplish all the missions of SMA and generate competitiveness in the global business environment.
