Scheduling Overview Scheduling is an important tool for manufacturing and engineering since it can have a major impact on the productivity of a process. Helps minimize –Production Time –Costs by explicitly telling the manufacturing specialists what to run on which equipment. Production scheduling aims to maximize efficiency of the operation The methodology presented uses scheduling theory based on point allocation to dictate lot-to-entity allocation and visualization for one of the constraint modules in the factory 9 © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Problem Statement 6 Chamber States (setup condition) with 35 active production recipes In-flexibility to run everywhere based on, –Hardware –Gas restrictions –Recipe qualification on tools Chamber conditioning & test runs needed when switching states Inability to meet required productive hours results in cycle time losses Chamber states are defined based on the gas configuration used for Production © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Problem Statement (Contd.) Goal Productive Hours/Day Components of Chamber State Change Re-Measure ( 6 Months Data) Equivalent Loss of 1 Tool due to © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Proposed Model – Tools by State Reduce Chamber State Changes Eliminate associated Idle time with State Changes Use Passing Lanes to keep recipes Qualified Each Tool to have a Primary and Backup State EPI Scheduler to define State Changes based on WIP and Look ahead functions Reduce downtime associated with state changes © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
What is a WIP Scheduler? The WIP Scheduler is used to schedule a lot to be loaded into the tool The WIP Scheduler uses a set of rules that have been set up for each entity type The WIP Scheduler schedules a run by using the rules and other factors on each tool The WIP Scheduler and Dispatch are Different! –Dispatch only shows work, and the order is based on dispatching rules: Slack time Priority lot (Hot, Hand carry, etc.) –The WIP Scheduler sees what can run on a tool and determines what lot or group of lots (batch) should run next based on the rules 13 © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Rule Definitions Points are assigned for each rule (Low, Med, High) Lot-based Rules –Priority, Lateness, Static Lot / Entity Rules –“Cost” of changing Chamber State –How many tools can run the Recipe right now? Fewer tools means MORE points –MTTD consideration for batches with inspectable lots © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Maximization Function Where Rules are defined based on, Lot Priority Lot Lateness Lot Slack Time Lot Inspection Tool Chamber State Tool Count Tool Ready Tool State, etc. 15 © 2014 Texas Instruments Incorporated
