Over the last fifty-plus years, the increased complexity and speed of integrated circuits have radically changed our world. Today, semiconductor manufacturing is perhaps the most important segment of the global manufacturing sector. As the semiconductor industry has become more competitive, improving planning and control has become a key factor for business success. This book is devoted to production planning and control problems in semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities. It is the first book that takes a comprehensive look at the role of modeling, analysis, and related information systems for such manufacturing systems. The book provides an operations research- and computer science-based introduction into this important field of semiconductor manufacturing-related research.Spreadsheet-based capacity planning models are ubiquitous. From the early days of Lotus 123 and Quattro Pro to todaya#39;s Microsoft Excel-based tools, many planners and other wafer fab personnel have developed their own spreadsheetanbsp;...
