Vishay Siliconix, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Vishay Intertechnology, is the leading manufacturer of power transistors and integrated circuits. Recently the company has signed a software license and professional services agreement with 3C Software to implement the Impact:ECS cost management system for both its wafer fabrication and test and assembly operations.

The finance, accounting and IT teams from Vishay Siliconix will work directly with 3C Software cost and manufacturing experts to develop a comprehensive cost management process using Impact:ECS’ flexible set of modeling and forecasting tools. By mirroring the company’s production process, the company will have the ability to generate detailed cost by product, improve production mix decisions, and discover opportunities to reduce or eliminate costs. Reducing their dependence on spreadsheets will make manufacturing costs transparent and enhance Vishay Siliconix’s leaders understanding of their bottom line.

The agreement with Vishay Siliconix further solidifies Impact:ECS’ dominance as the costing solution of choice for semiconductor manufacturers. “Vishay joins a long list of semiconductor companies that have discovered the importance of detailed costing systems in managing their business”, shares 3C Software CEO Matthew Smith. With this installation, 3C Software continues to demonstrate the relevance of enterprise-wide cost management applications that deliver actionable data to production, sales, finance and accounting groups within the semiconductor market.
