18th Fab Managers Forum
Improving Productivity for Mature Fabs
Date: 6 - 7 October 2014
Time: 20:00 - 22:00 / 08:30 - 12:30
Location: Room Chartreuse, ALPEXPO
|Europe’s semiconductor industry faces major challenges in the global market in the coming years. Special infrastructure conditions and the rapidly changing electronics market will require existing wafer fabs to introduce smart manufacturing technologies and efficient production methods. |
The EU’s Agenda 2020 and the implementation of the Internet of Things offer great opportunities for the “More-than-Moore” market and could represent important milestones on the path toward the further development of the semiconductor industry in Europe.
For this reason, the Fab Managers Forum in Grenoble will look at the requirements of the Internet of Things and explain which key roles the semiconductor industry can play in its implementation.
The high degree of production flexibility realized in the European semiconductor industry and its wafer fabs usually conflicts with their comparatively inflexible automation. Nonetheless, significant efficiency improvements can be achieved using smart, quickly adaptable automation solutions. The Fab Managers Forums will therefore look at this important topic in the second session.

Who should attend?
FAB operations and engineering management, senior managers and experts from the suppliers and services companies and related research and development partners. This forum will have sessions of short presentations, closing with the very popular and interactive Fab Managers Executive Panel. To take full advantage of the opportunity to network with other attendees, we will have a Reception/Dinner on Monday evening. Some topics addressed at the FMF on Tuesday morning will get a coverage in more depth in the SEMICON Europa Technical Programs sessions.
