3:10pm - 4:05pm

Location: Aula Convegni (first floor)
Manufacturing big data analytics for smart production

Session Abstract

Global Manufacturing networks are facing disruptive challenges due to new technologies and solutions such as Big Data, Internet of Things, Cloud, and artificial intelligence, in which value chain positioning of individual firms may be restructured and the firm boundary has become blurred. The increasing adoption of new technologies have empowered an unprecedented level of manufacturing intelligence with profound effects on the controls, management, resource allocation and decisions involved in smart production. New ecosystem has emerged in which leading companies are battling for dominant positions in this newly created platform via providing novel value-proposition solutions and/or employing new technologies to support smart production. There should be a set of systematic methodologies for cross-discipline collaborations to empower smart manufacturing in addition to the underlying infrastructure and technologies. On the basis of our extensive collaborative studies with high-tech industries and the observed trends, this keynote aims to address emerging issues driven by the needs in modeling, big data analytics, and optimization for smart production. Indeed, semiconductor manufacturing is one of the most complicated and fast clock-speed industries driven by Moore’s Law for continuous technology migration and productivity enhancement. In the fully automation facility such as wafer fab, various approaches and solutions are developed for big data analytics to address new challenges involved in yield enhancement, defect diagnosis, advanced process control, equipment health management, cycle time reduction, cost reduction, human capital and productivity enhancement. This talk will conclude with discussions of the implications of evolutionary digital manufacturing technologies and applications to foster more discussions.
