Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) is a cloud-based product for technology companies with outsourced manufacturing operations. It supports the unique manufacturing, supply chain and financial needs of semiconductor and high tech businesses.
Some of the kinds of manufacturers that benefit from Tensoft FSM include fabless and traditional semiconductor, integrated circuit, optical, RF, MEMS, solid state device, LED and solar. Tensoft FSM can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud, hosted at a SAS70 Type II data center.
Tensoft FSM’s offers Manufacturing Bill of Materials (BOM) which is designed to handle the industry’s “inverted BOM.” Instead of the traditional ERP BOM that is designed to manage multiple parts for each product, Tensoft FSM is designed to manage a BOM made of parts that “explode” to build multiple products. This supports many of the other features that are critical for this industry, such as the ability to consolidate and analyze WIP, yield and attributes across vendors and over time and the ability to track lot genealogy, both forwards and backward.
As an end-to-end ERP system, Tensoft FSM provides an audit history and supports historical reporting. In addition, Tensoft FSM manages and integrates data from outsourced vendors, including fabs, test, assembly and fulfillment subcontractors.
