Product creation cycle Specification Product acceptance CUSTOMER Code CAD Maskmaking Fab Assembly Test Start End Total time for cycle may be 12 months. How do we manage changes? Use MODELS to predict the effects of change! Predicted performance Models allow us to predict performance (used in testing ) and are used to aid layout generation (used in maskmaking )
