A new system dynamics tool, T21-Ohio, was developed to support integrated and comprehensive development planning at the state level. Based on the Threshold 21 (T21) framework, T21-Ohio provides insights into the potential impacts of energy and environmental policies across a wide range of sectors, and reveals how different strategies interact with one(More)
Semiconductor manufacturing is a capital-extensive industry. How to utilize billions of dollars of equipment as efficiently as possible is a critical factor for a semiconductor manufacturer to succeed in stiff competition. Improving performance of manufacturing process increases overall tool throughput, reduces operating costs, and saves companies millions(More)
The selection of appropriate machines is one of the most critical decisions in the design and development of a successful production environment. In this study, a user-friendly decision support system is proposed for machine tool selection. This system guides the decision-maker in selecting available machines via effective algorithms, such as the Analytic(More)
Cluster tools are highly integrated machines that can perform multiple manufacturing processes. A series of processing steps, transportation, and control are integrated into a single tool. We develop a novel simulation methodology to determine production schedules for cluster tools. The proposed approach provides route of products in the tool with given(More)
