Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a new set of simulation models, organized in a testbed. The aim of the testbed consists in providing researchers with a platform able to credibly represent the complexity of modern semiconductor manufacturing. The testbed is open to public use, and include so far four models. A high-volume/low-mix model and a low-volume/high-mix model constitutes the foundation of the testbed. Two additional models incorporate the complexity of engineering lots. We conclude this paper by presenting a case study that demonstrates that the third and fourth model can be used to assess the performance of integrated dispatching strategies for production and engineering lots.
