Paper Abstract

Industrial engineering is fairly new to the semiconductor industry, though the awareness to its importance has increased in recent years. The U.S. semiconductor industry in particular has come to the realization that in order to remain competitive in the global market it must take the lead not only in product development but also in manufacturing. Industrial engineering techniques offer one of the most effective strategies for achieving manufacturing excellence. Industrial engineers play an important role in the success of the manufacturing facility. This paper defines the industrial engineers role in the IC facility, sets the visions of excellence in semiconductor manufacturing and highlights 10 roadblocks on the journey towards manufacturing excellence.
