Automation is widely discussed in IC- and mask-manufacturing and partially realized everywhere. The idea for the automation goes back to 1978, when it turned out that the operators for the then newly installed PBS-process-line (the first in Europe) should be trained to behave like robots for particle reduction gaining lower defect densities on the masks. More than this goal has been achieved. It turned out recently, that the automation with its dedicated work routes and detailed documentation of every lot (individual mask or reticle) made it easy to obtain the CEEC certificate which includes ISO 9001.
