Business Intelligence (BI) is a relatively new concept that has received a tremendous amount of coverage in recent manufacturing publications. The use of an integrated knowledge base in establishing best business practices is not new, but the demands of very high volume wireless semiconductor manufacturing with high product and process yields, combined with thin profit margins, has intensified effort in this area.
