Semiconductor fabrication factories are large enterprises with many toolsets, each having multiple production machines. The process flow is highly reentrant, therefore modeling is best done by discrete-event simulation. To describe such a fab, the author has developed a new discrete event simulator called FabSim. It is written in C++. As the simulation engine it uses SystemC, a C++ class library originally developed for modeling "Systems on a Chip". The factory with its machines and lots traveling and in process is mapped onto SystemC like a hardware description during RTL (register transfer) modeling. The resulting simulator is compact, fast and efficient. In a special configuration as a MS Windows dynamic link library, the simulator is fully interactive. At any time you may define a stop in the simulation flow, retrieve the state of the whole system, change parameters, add lots, or even enter a new state and continue with the simulation.
