Dispatching for a Make-to-Order Fab with Machine-Dedication Characteristics
|關鍵字:||semiconductor dispatching;make-to-order;hit rate;machine-dedication;mask setup|
This research aims to develop dispatching algorithms to achieve high hit rate (on-time delivery rate) for a make-to-order semiconductor fab. The fab of interest involves two special characteristics: mask-setup and machine-dedication. These two characteristics had been partially addressed or examined mainly for a make-to-stock fab. This research proposes a dispatching algorithm based on the concept of line-balance and starvation avoidance. Extensive simulation experiments will be performed to justify and improve the proposed algorithm. Test problems are varied by changing product-mix and mask setup-time.
