What we cover in this technical paper:
- The complexities of wafer fab scheduling
- The pros and cons of traditional heuristic-based scheduling
- Seagate’s performance benchmark study: comparing the new proposed scheduling technology with the current simulation scheduler at their Springtown fab.
- Results from Seagate’s optimized schedules report, showing significant reductions in cycle time and increases in throughput compared with SimModel schedules.
