Kitchener, Ontario, September 27, 2022 – PEER Group®, the largest supplier of innovative factory automation software products, is a proud sponsor and participant at this year’s Advanced Process Control Smart Manufacturing Conference (APCSM).

The three-day conference, which is taking place in Austin, Texas, from October 10-13, brings together members of the microelectronics and related industries, including semiconductor OEMs and factories. The APCSM features tutorials, technical presentations, and exhibits covering various topics and trends related to APC, AI, and smart manufacturing.

Doug Suerich, PEER Group’s Product Evangelist and Director of Marketing, is co-chairing the conference alongside APCSM perennial Co-chair, Bradley Van Eck, James Moyne, an Associate Research Scientist at the University of Michigan and CTO of the Integrated Measurement Association (IMA), and John Pace, President of the IMA.

“We look forward to welcoming all attendees, presenters, and exhibitors to Austin for this year’s APCSM,” says Van Eck. “After two years as a virtual conference, being back in person is going to be great. We have an amazing lineup of tutorials and presentations that are sure to shed light on some of the current challenges our industry is facing and how innovations in advanced process control will help us overcome them.”

A key component of the APCSM is the Monday tutorials, which provide attendees with in-depth information on the latest trends and advancements in microelectronics manufacturing. Albert Fuchigami, Senior Software Developer at PEER Group, and the 2022 recipient of the Leadership Award for his contributions to the SEMI® Standards Program, is co-presenting the first of two tutorials. The tutorial, titled Understanding SEMI Information and Control Standards, will provide an overview of, and the philosophies behind, the SEMI Standards and how they fit together to help factories get data from equipment so it can be utilized to improve production capabilities. It will also provide technical details of these highlighted features.
