One of the critical challenges facing semiconductor manufacturing in today's competitive market is the need to drive profitability by increasing efficiency without increasing headcount. A traditionally manpower-intensive area of manufacturing is tool qualification test wafer management. A study is presented using a seven-step focused-improvement methodology to develop and implement Computer-Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) tools to reduce manual intervention in test wafer management for labor and error minimization.
