Frost & Sullivan has selected Camstar Systems, Inc. as the recipient of the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award for its Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for the medical device and semiconductor back-end industries. Camstar’s solutions are flexible and highly effective in discrete, batch and combination process industries.
The company’s industry focus, purpose-built applications, proven implementation methodology, and unparalleled customer satisfaction are the reasons for its market leadership and consistently high growth.
In the medical device industry Camstar’s out-of-the-box Medical Device Suite helps improve manufacturing processes for a wide spectrum of products including drug eluting stents, catheters, defibrillators, joint replacements, insulin pumps, and diagnostic test kits.
Their electronic manufacturing systems enable Life Sciences manufacturers to achieve higher product quality and lower regulatory risk. Important operational benefits include shorter time to volume, increased manufacturing agility and lower costs.
Camstar’s Semiconductor Suite is the first enterprise MES designed specifically for Semiconductor test, assembly, and packaging operations. Historically, semiconductor manufacturers were forced to customize legacy systems to manage work in process for back-end operations.
"Camstar’s vision to create a completely ‘out-of-the-box’ tailored solution for the industry, resulted in superior capabilities to accurately deliver real-time relevant quality data from different sources," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Sanjeev R Sridharan. "This innovative solution provides customers with complete process visibility across multiple sites. The highly adaptable Semiconductor Suite enables semiconductor enterprises across the globe to respond rapidly to the dynamic nature of their consumer market by quickly implementing new products and changes to their manufacturing processes."
The company’s award-winning InSite leverages leading edge technologies available in the marketplace today: A Service-Oriented Architecture employing web services, a flexible data model and a configurable user interface that dramatically decreases the time and effort necessary to deploy and validate the solution.
"Camstar’s unmatched expertise and extensive industry experience are reflected in its applications knowledge and the ability to provide innovative solutions," notes Sridharan. "Aided by strategic partnerships with important integration partners, Camstar leverages its global presence and technical expertise to provide unparalled support to its customers."
