Projects Assigned 

Tool End of Life (EOL) Management: 

  • Micron Singapore’s state of the art Front End manufacturing fab is home to thousands of critical semiconductor machines which are running around the clock in high-volume operation.

This project's goal is to fine-tune and optimize our system of tracking and managing operating cost performance of our key manufacturing equipment.

  • Establish visible year on year cost of ownership glidepath improvements with documented shared accountability on tool performance. 

Procurement Supplier Benchmarking and Metrics for Contracts:
