27 August 1998 In-line inspection optimization using a yield management system
Author Affiliations +
We have studied optimization of in-line inspection in terms of Cost of Ownership. We have defined that Cost of Yield Loss of in-line inspection steps is 'the potential cost of products lost by unfitness of in-line inspection' and cleared that optimized of in-line inspection is 'the cost reduction of yield loss brought by missing the occurrence of process or process tool excursions'. From this point of view, we have studied and proposed a method for in-line inspection optimization.
