International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI), the consortium dedicated to helping improve the productivity and cost performance of semiconductor manufacturing operations, today announced the keynote speakers for the 8th Annual Symposium on Manufacturing Effectiveness, hosted by ISMI on October 19-20 at the Hilton Austin Airport in Austin, Texas. Speakers will include Paul Fego, vice president and manager of worldwide manufacturing at Texas Instruments, and John Scoville, senior director of application engineering at Applied Materials.

Texas Instruments and Applied Materials to Keynote at ISMI’s Symposium on Manufacturing Effectiveness 2011: Exciting lineup of manufacturing innovators to share their strategies

Austin, TX | Posted on August 24th, 2011

Paul Fego will open the Symposium on Manufacturing Effectiveness on October 19 with his keynote "Building Blocks for an Efficient and Effective Manufacturing Model," which will focus on how semiconductor manufacturing can meet next-generation challenges, including high volume manufacturing, cost effectiveness and on-time delivery. From wafer fabrication through packaging, assembly and test, Fego will cover the entire chain of events that must happen to make a factory work well and deliver on time.

On October 20, Applied Materials' John Scoville will give the opening keynote, "Predictability as a Key Component of Productivity: The Move Towards Smart Yield." Scoville will identify the goals that must be addressed in order to achieve a full and continuously optimized vision of the future that includes simulation in lock-step with reality, and achieving fab control of all systems according to common productivity and cost-reduction targets.

"Manufacturing Week is designed to provide a wide spectrum of manufacturing, technical and business content and networking opportunities that will focus on cost-efficient solutions to maximize fab productivity," said Richard Young, SEMATECH's vice president of manufacturing. "These industry leaders will share their insights on leading productivity trends, and their best practices related to reducing costs and improving fab and tool efficiency."

ISMI's Manufacturing Week, from October 17-21, features the ISMI Symposium on Manufacturing Effectiveness, the pre-eminent event for semiconductor engineers and managers to meet face-to-face and collaborate on all aspects of manufacturing productivity, including the latest in cost-cutting methodologies, real-time data management, manufacturing methods, and advances in equipment and fab design.

Along with a wide-range of short courses and workshops and an exhibition showcasing the latest tools and solutions from some of the industry's top suppliers, Manufacturing Week will cover some of the most exciting areas of opportunity for our industry, including factory and equipment productivity, AEC/APC, cost reduction, green manufacturing, emerging ESH regulations, nanomaterials biosafety, factory modeling, and statistical methods.
