It is possible to reduce or reduce the time required for training. In addition, the apparatus training server performs a simulation based on the condition data received from the user by the user terminal, and the user is trained using interactive communication in which the simulation result data is provided to the user through the user terminal. It is possible to perform training for the user with the above effects when simply transmitting data (for example, manual) from the apparatus training server to the user terminal.

  In addition, since it is possible for the device training server to grasp information related to training results by the user, the device training server is provided with a function for storing and managing such information for each user, or such information is stored. A management server having a management function is provided on the network so that users' needs can be known based on information stored and managed, and such information can be used in future products (semiconductor manufacturing equipment and training systems). Etc.) can be used for development and quality management. In addition, there are many cases where a large number of programs are used for simulation, but since such a program is stored and executed on the apparatus training server side, the burden on the apparatus on the user terminal side can be reduced. . For this reason, the configuration of the present invention in which the simulation is performed on the side of the apparatus training server connected to the user terminal via a line is very effective for the manufacturer who performs the training and the user who receives the training.

  Then, the customer can view data on the result of the simulation performed using the condition data on the screen of the training corner by inputting data of a desired simulation condition regarding the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus to be simulated. it can. Specifically, the condition data input by the customer is transmitted from the user PC 3 to the apparatus training server 1 via the Internet 5, and the apparatus training server 1 performs a simulation based on the received condition data and the result of the simulation. Is transmitted to the user PC 3 via the Internet 5, and the user PC 3 displays and outputs the received result data on the screen.

  In the example shown in the figure, simulation result data transmitted from the apparatus training server 1 is displayed at the bottom of the screen. In this simulation result, a graph (simulation result) in which the horizontal axis indicates time (TIME) and the vertical axis indicates temperature (° C) is shown, and this result is input by the customer on the upper side of the screen. It was obtained based on the condition data.

Here, a specific example in which a customer performs training using the above simulation will be described for temperature and pressure training and mechanical part training.
First, specific examples of temperature training and pressure training are shown.
In these trainings, first, a customer instructs the apparatus training server 1 to input simulation condition data and perform a simulation through the operation of the user PC 3. Here, as the condition data, the customer can arbitrarily set, for example, a PID constant that is a control parameter, or specify the device type (vertical diffusion, vertical CVD, single wafer diffusion, single wafer CVD, etc.). Selection or input of a set value of temperature (or pressure) is performed.

  As described above, when there is an input of condition data from the customer, the apparatus training server 1 performs a simulation operation similar to that of the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus to be simulated based on the characteristics of the electric furnace stored in advance, for example. The result of the simulation operation (for example, a temperature graph or a pressure graph) is transmitted to the user PC 3 and displayed on the screen of the user PC 3.

  Then, the customer determines whether or not the result is desired by looking at the result data (response waveform etc.) for the condition data displayed on the screen of the user PC 3, and the result If it is not desired, it is possible to adjust the condition data such as the above-mentioned PID constant and cause the apparatus training server 1 to perform the simulation operation again and to examine the result data. By repetitive learning using such simulation, the customer can learn temperature control and pressure control in the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus.

Next, a specific example of mechanical training is shown.
In this training, the apparatus training server 1 displays a three-dimensional semiconductor manufacturing apparatus (for example, a vertical apparatus) on the screen of the customer's user PC 3, and the customer uses the actual apparatus. It is possible to learn the mechanism operation by operating the same controller or handy terminal as the simulated one.

  In this training, the customer first instructs the apparatus training server 1 to input simulation condition data and perform a simulation through the operation of the user PC 3. Here, as the condition data, for example, the customer sets or changes the transport parameter, sets the recipe, performs the execution setting (transport system operation), and performs the cassette loading / unloading operation. Also, the switch is pressed.

  As described above, when the customer inputs condition data, the apparatus training server 1 performs a simulation operation similar to that of the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus to be simulated based on, for example, preset mechanical characteristics (conveyance operation). The result of the simulation operation (for example, the result of wafer cassette movement, wafer transfer, position adjustment, LED lighting, etc.) is transmitted to the user PC 3 and displayed on the screen of the user PC 3.

  Then, the customer determines whether or not the result is desired by looking at the result data (operation of the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus) for the condition data displayed on the screen of the user PC 3, If the result is not desired, the above condition data can be adjusted and the apparatus training server 1 can perform the simulation operation again to examine the result data. By repeating repetitive learning using such a simulation, the customer can learn mechanical operations in the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus.

  As described above, in the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus training system of the present example, in the configuration in which the apparatus training server 1 and the user PC 3 are connected via the Internet 5, the apparatus training server 1 trains the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus to the user through the user PC 3. As a result, efficient training can be performed.

  In the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus training system of this example, the user is trained using a simulation related to the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus without using the actual semiconductor manufacturing apparatus. Therefore, the user trains with the same feeling as the actual apparatus. In addition, since the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus is not destroyed, the user can boldly try various operations without worrying about destruction of the apparatus. The user can also receive practical training such as simulated occurrence of trouble and troubleshooting on-line. In addition, the user can receive a fine just fit training in which details are accurately expressed (simulated) for each semiconductor manufacturing apparatus (apparatus of various types).

  Further, in the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus training system of this example, since the training for the customer is performed using communication via the line 5, for example, the economics such as the travel expenses required for the training personnel to go to the training as in the past. Can reduce the burden on the user, save time by eliminating the time required for the travel, etc., and reduce the labor cost of training personnel. In the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus training system of this example, for the same reason, for example, the latest technology in a timely manner can be provided, or a large number of customers can be trained at any time.

  Further, in the training system for the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus of this example, since it is possible for the apparatus training server 1 side (manufacturer or the like) to grasp information regarding the training status by the user, for example, based on such information, It becomes possible to know the needs and use such information for future product development and quality management. Also, the simulation program often becomes a large amount of (program) data, but since such a program is stored and executed on the apparatus training server 1 side, the program to the apparatus on the user PC 3 side is transmitted. The burden can be reduced. As described above, the configuration of this example in which the simulation is performed on the apparatus training server 1 connected to the user PC 3 via a line (in this example, the Internet 5) is very useful for, for example, a manufacturer who performs training or a user who receives training. It becomes effective.

Here, the configurations of the semiconductor manufacturing apparatus training system, apparatus training server, and user terminal according to the present invention are not necessarily limited to those described above, and various configurations may be used.
