If you are considering a desktop solution, even ones which purport to be web-enabled, you may wish to consider the following questions:

  • Does the analysis package look like it’s designed by product/test engineers or designed by IT people?
  • Is your old data going to be available to you on-line going back years?
  • Are you going to be able to save your work on-line and go back to it at any time in the future?
  • Are you going to be able to easily invalidate rubbish data?
  • Is fab data automatically linked up with probe or test data of the same material for one-click correlation analysis?
  • Can you run characterization and other advanced analysis such as Gage R&R in a single click?
  • Can you add comments to a datalog or a lot?
  • Can you analyze from a computer or tablet or smartphone with no additional software needed, just broadband?
  • Can you do Reticle Analysis in one click?
  • Can you get alerted by the system if you have a paremetric problem or bin problem?
  • Can you add calculated tests to datalogs?
  • Can you  create on-line projects, eg for a yield improvement effort, for later sharing or presentation with colleagues?
  • Can you analyse hundreds of datalogs without having to download them to your own computer first?
  • Can you upload schematics and pinouts to help with analysis?
