The Challenge
To deal with the IC design industry’s complex supply chain, GUC wanted to employ a flexible and innovative business model, and function as a key design hub that integrates IP providers and IC design partners. Departments were working in silos and communication between systems could not be synchronized. Project status reports proved inaccurate as project information was updated manually every week. Managing product issues required many resources and problem-solving knowledge was neither accumulated nor compiled into a database. GUC needed a comprehensive project management integration platform to handle the intricate internal and external business processes.

Global Unichip Corporation (GUC)

About The Customer
Global Unichip Corporation (GUC) is Taiwan’s sixth largest integrated circuit (IC) design company. With customers from around the world, GUC specializes in providing IC design solutions. GUC wanted to function as a key design hub that integrates IP providers and IC design partners, but faced challenges with internal processes, communication, and project management.
The Solution
GUC selected Dassault Systemes’ ENOVIA V6 collaborative platform. It delivers the flexibility, open standards, scalability, and industry-specific functionality needed to tie together multi-discipline engineering groups and product development contributors from other business roles. The project gradually incorporated 20 Lotus Notes systems into ENOVIA, providing solutions for various project requirements. The PLM system allows GUC to access past project details to quickly prepare and submit accurate quotes. IC design engineers can work better as a team, and the management team has access to real-time project status information. ENOVIA enables external collaboration among IP providers, IC design partners, wafer manufacturers, IC testers, and packagers. The system improves communication, coordination, issue resolution rate, and project execution and quality.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Time needed to prepare quotes has been cut from three weeks to just one week. Issue resolution rate has improved from 24% to 55% within 3 months. GUC plans to enhance the timeliness and accuracy of pricing, real-time quote response, and simultaneous quote assessment to increase revenue. The system can help reduce high costs due to project delays through an early warning mechanism and reduce the product’s defect rate through inspection of standard index reports.
