Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global provider of
performance power and mobile semiconductor solutions, has renewed its
investment in Stibo
Systems by upgrading to Stibo System’s STEP 6.0. A customer since
2010, Fairchild Semiconductor originally selected Stibo Systems
award-winning multidomain master data management (MDM) platform to
create and manage accurate product information used to support their
global web presence. Having achieved a solid ROI, Fairchild
Semiconductor will extend its use and establish a central source of
trusted information that will include vendor and purchased materials
information. By leveraging version 6.0, the Company will create a true
multidomain MDM solution that will manage product information
hierarchies and complex bill of materials with support for both
technical and marketing content.
Fairchild designs, manufactures and supplies power and mobile
semiconductor technologies that are used in automotive, mobile, LED
lighting and power management applications.
Fairchild will continue to leverage Stibo Systems' MDM platform to
manage more than 13,000 finished good products with over 19,000
digital assets, including product data sheets and other marketing
Using Stibo Systems' technology and services, Fairchild can establish
more accurate and consistent product hierarchies that are created from
the semiconductor industry viewpoint. These categories are based on a
number of elements that include both the physical nature of the
product as well as the application in which it will be used.
Fairchild utilizes Stibo’s MDM solution to control the highly complex
bill of materials components they buy from vendors and to manage
details such as pricing, qualification, and supply chain information.
In the future, the Company plans to extend its use of STEP to manage
more detailed vendor information.
By leveraging the new workflow and portal capabilities found in
Stibo’s MDM solution, Fairchild will make it easier for more than 60
data stewards and owners to manage and see only the data that is
applicable to their particular role. Controlled by workflow, Stibo‘s
solution ensures that only the appropriate data is funneled to users;
thereby improving efficiency by bringing data management closer to the
respective data owner.
