A BATCH OPTIMIZATION SOLVER FOR DIFFUSION AREA

Jan 01, 2006  In the literature, batching and scheduling in diffusion areas is mainly performed by dispathing rules (Ibrahim et al., 2003). (Monch and Habenicht, 2003) propose to use a dispatching rule to batch the operations and a genetic algorithm to assign the batches to the equipments.

Scheduling batches with time constraints in wafer ...

This work proposes and tests an algorithm for batching and dispatching lots along cleaning and diffusion operations of a wafer fab. These are characterised by: 1) time constraints (i.e., the time between the end of an operation 'n' and the start of the operation 'n + q' must be lower than a time limit, in order to guarantee the lots' quality); 2) absence of batching affinity between operations.

Scheduling decisions in the diffusion and cleaning area of a semiconductor manufacturing facility have an important impact on the overall performance of a plant. Consequently, we want to optimize those decisions while taking real-world constraints into account. An important property of machines in this work area is their batching capability: They can perform multiple operations at the same time.
