 Forum Chairman:

Forum Chairman

Mr. Robert Chien, Deputy Director, TSMC / Chairman, SEMI Taiwan Smart Manufacturing Committee

 Forum Moderator: 

Ms. Doris Li, Manager, ASE

 Forum Outline: 


       As manufacturing technology advancement in semiconductor industry continues, smarter  solutions are required in order to overcome various new challenges in an increasingly complex fab operation environment from factory automation, manufacturing data analytics, wafer/die production tractability, cycle time reduction, equipment efficiency improvement, yield enhancement, and cost of ownership management in both front end and backend fabs. The trend of a step-by-step evolution towards a “smart fab of the future” has taken place in some advanced fabs and is expected to continue to expand to the rest of the global semiconductor industry value chain in the upcoming years.

       In this half-day forum, presenters from all over the world will share their insights on the latest market trends and emerging technologies in Smart Manufacturing areas such as IOT, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Deep Learning (DL) with focus on implications for the semiconductor industry. They will also illustrate the benefits of realizing “Smart Manufacturing” through the adoption of new methods, new systems, and new solutions.
