1 Solutions to HW 1 IEOR 130 Prof. Leachman 1. Line yield (LY) is the fraction of wafers started that become wafer outs from the wafer fabrication (wafer fab) factory. Die yield (DY) is the fraction of chips (dice) printed on wafers coming out of wafer fab that electrically work. That is, it is the ratio of good die out to total die out. Overall equipment efficiency (OEE) is a ratio A/B, where A is the theoretical time required to complete the good units of product actually processed by the equipment during an observation period, and B is the total time in the observation period. 2. The output of each factory is proportional to (DY)(OEE). The impact of LY depends upon where in the process the line yield loss occurs. We consider two extreme cases. Case 1: All LY loss happens after the last bottleneck step in the process. Then output is proportional to (LY)(DY)(OEE), in which case: Factory A: (.85)(.90)(.85) = .65025 Factory B: (.82)(.98)(.60) = .48216 So factory A produces more output. Case 2: All LY loss happens before the first bottleneck step in the process. Then wafer starts can be compensated for the LY loss to send the same number of wafers through the bottleneck, making output is proportional to (DY)(OEE), in which case: Factory A: (.90)(.85) = .765 Factory B: (.98)(.60) = .588 So factory A produces more output in any case.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
