Major cost gaps were identified from a benchmark (BM) study for a Semiconductor fab. The study triggered deep-dive assessments of both maintenance practices and supply chain business processes. Those assessments uncovered significant improvement opportunities. In this paper, we discuss the approach used to identify and quantify those opportunities, and share important results and observations with the Compound Semiconductor (CS) manufacturing community.
