A Methodology for Product Mix Planning in Semiconductor Foundry Manufacturing

  title={A Methodology for Product Mix Planning in Semiconductor Foundry Manufacturing},
  author={Yon-Chun Chou and I. K. Hong},
Since a semiconductor foundry plant manufactures a wide range of memory and logic products using the make-to-order business model, the product mix is an important production decision. This paper first describes the characteristics of the product mix planning problem in foundry manufacturing that are attributable to the long flow time and queuing network behaviors. The issues of time bucket selection, mix optimization and bottleneck-based planning are next addressed. A decision software system… CONTINUE READING
