Manufacturing - Electronics
  • Develop operational data for the chip manufacturing area to update the capacity model.
  • Identify opportunities to improve scheduling and manufacturing; prioritize based on viability and time.
  • Create an implementation plan for long-term improvements.
The Solution:
  • Performed a detailed study of tool capacity, reviewed process yield statistics, and evaluated optimized resource allocation
  • Evaluated current planning and scheduling processes and sampled requirements
  • Identified potential improvements to increase production through improved resource, workforce, and tool utilization
  • Created a plan from the recommended improvements to improve operations
Realized Benefits:
  • Improved utilization of the chip fab tooling
  • Identification of proper workforce staffing in all chip fab areas

“Many of the improvements identified during this project have been implemented during the study, and others are underway… These changes will lead to a planned throughput improvement of 25%.”
