System Analysis provides an assessment of the overall fab performance for profitability, including yield- output- CYCLETIME, cost, New-Technology-Ramp, methodologies and execution capability.

The report isolates gaps that affect the profitability and competitiveness of the fab and a recommendation for rapid closure of the gaps to gain competitive edge, including:

  1. Assessment of equipment (equipment capability now and in the future).
  2. Equipment cost.
  3. Maintenance cost.
  4. Excursion and output (lack of predictability and equipment vendor management).
  5. Process and process integration (including interactions and their sensitivity to yield and excursions).
  6. Affects of clean room ambient.
  7. Consumables and spare parts.
  8. Yield and its connection to tool-process performance (defects and uniformity).
