8 August 2001
Atlanta, Georgia

3C Software, providers of the enterprise cost management system, Impact:3C, announced a software license and professional services agreement with Intersil Corporation. The Palm Bay, Florida corporate location of Intersil will use Impact:3C® to solve the following issues, seamlessly:

  • Provide inventory costing for their Finished Goods and Work in Progress in a complex environment that includes both internally manufactured items, partial outsourced operations and purchase/resell situations.
  • Manufacturing performance monitoring against standard and budget.
  • Ability to project multiple scenarios forward for both Budgeting and Strategic Planning.

Intersil is an organization that is at the center of Wireless Connectivity. Intersil provides the silicon advantage and semiconductor expertise to enable voice, data and video communication. Their products are transforming the communications landscape by providing wireless access to the Internet, making networks more reliable and by providing the building blocks for today’s electronic commerce. Intersil’s products include flexible broadband wireless access for the digital home or office and integrated communication devices capable of wired-Ethernet speeds and Voice-over Internet Protocols (VoIP) for the emerging wireless Internet.

3C Software, a leader in detailed cost management systems for process manufacturers, developed the premiere cost management tool in 1988. This tool, Impact:3C was created from more than thirty years of experience in the costing arena. Impact:3C is a calculation engine that is easy to use with all accounting methods, simple to maintain, capable of communicating with all corners of a corporation’s environment and able to handle unlimited calculations and variables. Implementations are faster and less expensive when compared to the implementation of traditional software.

Impact:3C® is designed to handle the complex needs of process intensive manufacturing industries such as semiconductor, pharmaceutical, pulp and paper, textile, glass, chemical, electronics and food processing. Contributing factors to the complexity of costing include large product mixes, non-standard product flows, unpredictable yields, outsourcing of major processing steps, fluctuating market prices and demand, physically separated manufacturing facilities and inconsistent data gathering systems.

Common among the semiconductor industry is the need for reporting on inventories, excess and obsolete valuation and yield variance management. Some of the complex solutions implemented for our semiconductor clients include reserve costing, yield variance and capacity planning.

Intersil joins Xilinx, TriQuint, Cypress Semiconductor, AMD (Advanced Micro Devices), Anadigics and Analog Devices as semiconductor manufacturers that have chosen Impact:3C® as their enterprise cost management system.
