Answer >>>
AGI’s FabTech Utility Matrix Program
How >>>
FabTech uses a database for each project and aggregates and diversifies all utilities, in groups specified by the user. The user generates a tool library to draw from.
Outputs >>>
> Utility information for each tool, each area, each Meta area and the entire facility
> List of tools in the facility
> Total requirements (by area and by project) of: Process gases, liquids, process vacuum, electrical requirements, exhaust capacity (by type and facility total), drain needs, heat load, specialty gases and chemicals
Features >>>
> Client-server database architecture to insure data integrity.
> Preformatted, professional reports.
> User-friendly graphical user interface.
> Can correspond to CAD layouts, giving location detail for all services.
> Database search for specific utilities returns all pertinent equipment.
> User-specified diversification factors by area for any utility.
> Proven ability to calculate heat  load to room for HVAC analysis.
> Fifteen years of proven microelectronics industry acceptance.
What's New >>>
> Support equipment is now linked to main tool.
> Renumbering and renaming areas and all equipment in area will update automatically.
> Renaming and renumbering areas will automatically update all equipment in the area.
> Smaller reports: reports only print tools and areas where the utility is used.
> A field has been added to track tools by serial number.
> Specialty gases and chemicals can now be aggregated.
> Renumber tools from a user interface and support equipment will renumber automatically.
> Contains more information required for tool fit-up such as pipe sizes, connection IDs and Valve IDs.
> Specialty gases and chemical reports printout with hazardous classification.
> Move tools from one area to another with ease.
> Select specialty gases from a predetermined list to ensure correct terminology throughout the project.
> When adding gases and chemicals, you now have the option to select different units for flow and pressure. These are then converted to a common unit and aggregated in the reports.
Newest FabTech Updates – 2014! >>>
> Provides diversification factors for each utility going to a specific tool.
> Provides multiple process cooling water connections.
> Customizable exhaust types
> Chemicals can be added as a bath volume or a point of use quantity.
> DI water report showing makeup rate and AWN size based upon demand.
> Nitrogen report showing nitrogen tank sizes and refill frequencies based upon demand.
> Electrical – The summary page now sorts the tools by area and voltage, as well as displaying the total project load by voltage.
> Electrical – The specific tool connections now show up sorted by voltage, rather than area. This lets the user differentiate service type more easily, and eliminate outlier voltages without having to manually look through the report. It also lets the user more easily assess having panels dedicated to a specific voltage, rather than using multiple unique transformers.
> Electrical – The new reports and cut sheets split the previous UPS and emergency categories of power into 3 types of power: safe shutdown (replacing UPS), standby (replacing emergency), and mission critical (which is automatically filled in if both safe shutdown and standby are selected).
> Electrical – Conditioned power is now available as an option.
> Electrical – A new panel analysis tool has been added to the front of the report that, assuming a standard North American commercial power supply, puts tools on either of 2 panel types/voltages, and separates them by area, in order to determine an approximate number of electrical panels needed. This report also removes very large tool loads from this calculation. It also takes into account the number of slots available in each panel.
