Welcome to the future
The semiconductor industry is a fiercely competitive business. Chip contract manufacturing in particular is subject to extreme cost pressure. Rapid time-to-market, innovative strengths and optimized production processes are crucial in this respect. GLOBALFOUNDRIES, the number two in the global market with fabs in the USA, Singapore and Germany, operates Europe’s largest cutting-edge plant for chip production at its Dresden location: Fab 1. Around 4,000 highly qualified employees manufacture innovative semiconductor products on the site, especially processors for smartphone, PC and tablet manufacturers. After five years of constant investment in capacity and new technologies, the company is now increasingly shifting its focus to productivity and profitability.

This also includes future-proof
workforce management. The high-tech company opted for
ATOSS Workforce Scheduling with integration of its existing
SAP® HCM solution after in-depth examination of all the options at hand. The aim is to optimize workforce management within production so they can respond to demand fluctuations and customer requirements even faster and more efficiently. At the same time, the company is striving to reduce the costs and input involved in HR administration. Even though full operation in Fab 1 only got underway very recently, GLOBALFOUNDRIES is already seeing the benefits in managing working times and the complex shift system. The foundations for a flexible, competitive working environment have been laid – the future can begin.
