Equipment Engineering Cost Controller
Prepared detailed analysis of both Equipment Engineering
and Cleanroom cost. Created and
managed programs to reduce cost of overall Cleanroom operation. Reported site
cost and status of cost reduction projects to management bi-weekly and
coordinated cost reduction projects with TI counterparts worldwide. Collaborated
with vendors and corporate purchasing to expedite delivery of materials for
production requirements and fab expansion project.
Generated Pareto analysis of cleanroom expenses and initiated
process and procedure reviews which analyzed usage rates and functional needs.
Used data to negotiate new vendor pricing and implement secondary sourcing,
resulting in a reduction of cleanroom expense of $1 million.
Produced cost of ownership and return on investment data to
support purchase of major equipment upgrades in the plasma etch area (LAMRC ESC
chuck upgrade) that resulted in a wafer cost reduction
$11.00 per wafer.
Inventoried stockroom and developed a spreadsheet and worked with
equipment managers in Dallas and Houston to recycle used parts after plant
shutdown, reducing inventory by $1 million. Received award for efficiency.
Troubleshot equipment problems, documented preventive
maintenance specifications and procedures.
Analyzed scrap events and developed a matrix for corrective
actions that reduced wafer scraps by 50%.
Eliminated a potential $420,000 scrap by designing equipment
modifications and procedural improvements to protect equipment from hardware
failures and misprocessing.
· Reduced EPI equipment costs by 25% by second sourcing key consumable spare parts and revising PM procedures to increase MTTR.
