Although it is generally accepted that in-line and off-line electrical characterization measurements have value in a semiconductor fab, their actual value to a specific fab depends heavily on a wide variety of parameters such as: the fab's end product and throughput; the sensitivity of the measurements to various process deviations and the implementation cost; etc. This paper will detail some of these dependencies and develop an economic method for the justification of various in-line electrical tests.
