Cycle time is a competitive weapon for semiconductor companies. It affects costs and customer service. This paper describes the method used in the fab of Agere in Madrid. The method is based on the use of exponentially weighted moving averages for cycle time target setting to machine level. This method has helped Madrid to achieve world-class cycle time. The advantage of this method over others described in the bibliography is also discussed
