Scheduling of Batch Processors in Semiconductor Manufacturing – A Review
Author(s)Mathirajan, M.; Appa Iyer, Sivakumar
In this paper a review on scheduling of batch processors (SBP) in semiconductor manufacturing (SM) is presented. It classifies SBP in SM into 12 groups. The suggested classification scheme organizes the SBP in SM literature, summarizes the current research results for different problem types. The classification results are presented based on various distributions and various methodologies applied for SBP in SM are briefly highlighted. A comprehensive list of references is presented. It is hoped that, this review will provide a source for other researchers/readers interested in SBP in SM research and help simulate further interest.
