The abstract follows.
Semiconductors enable the systems and products that we use to work,
communicate, travel, entertain, harness the energy, treat illness, make
new scientific discoveries, and more. Semiconductor manufacturing is
among the most complex manufacturing systems in existence today. This
complexity makes scheduling semiconductor manufacturing systems
extremely difficult.
In this two-part seminar, we discuss scheduling problems in this
challenging domain. In the second part, we discuss batch scheduling
problems, multiple orders per job scheduling problems, and scheduling
problems that include time lags for the jobs. Moreover, scheduling
problems related to cluster tools will be also briefly considered.
Solution techniques, mainly based on problem decomposition and
metaheuristics, will be also discussed. Finally, future research
direction for scheduling semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities will
be identified.
The next talk in our series will be given by:
Christian Artigues (LAAS - CNRS) | March 30 | Mixed integer linear
programming for resource-constrained scheduling
