Network Integrated Manufacturing leverages Computer Integrated
Manufacturing to create a new level of automation efficiency. NIM
integrates CIM elements into a supervisory whole. Using a distributed,
event-driven messaging framework, NIM accommodates rapid implementation,
additions, and changes. Subscription-based data access provides for
unprecedented efficiency and accuracy of operation.
tool manufacturers, this means fast and flexible integration of
diverse controllers and programming languages. Inter-process
communication is handled seamlessly, freeing resources to focus on
accomplishing the tool's function.
Fab managers, NIM provides efficient unification of station and area
controllers. Supervisory and MES systems can then view diverse
equipment and cells as a whole, whether in a prototype or production
environment. The result is a quantum gain in fast, efficient, and
reliable process management.
Hume Network Integrated Manufacturing sets the standard. It is field
proven in high performance, reliability, and customer satisfaction.
Hume NIM is in use by major fabs and tool manufacturers such as
FreeScale, Agilent, National, Delta Design, and Delphi.
