Application: Predictive maintenance for semiconductor manufacturing equipment (Patent ID: US20230400847A1)

The patent filed by Lam Research Corp. describes systems and methods for predictive maintenance in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The system includes a processor that uses offline data and real-time data to calculate predicted equipment health status, estimate equipment health status, and present adjusted equipment health status information, including expected remaining useful life of components. The system can detect anomalous conditions, identify failure types, and recommend modifications to improve equipment health.

The predictive maintenance system utilizes historical operating conditions, manufacturing information, and physics-based simulation data to train a neural network for predicting equipment health status. The system generates physics-based simulation values, trains the neural network using offline data and simulation values, and can recommend component removal based on predicted health status. The system also incorporates Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) information, design information, and quality data to enhance predictive maintenance capabilities.
