G-SCOP and STMicroelectronics partnership: Review on 10 years collaboration
The collaboration between G-SCOP laboratory and STMicroelectronics started with Mr. Hendrik Busch (2003-2006) CIFRE PhD. "Towards the re-use of knowledge in dynamic industrialization processes: Case study in the microelectronic domain" under the supervision of Prof. Michel Tollenaere. Since then, it has led a strong collaboration between G-SCOP and STMicroelectronics in the shape of CIFRE PhDs and partnership in European project IMPROVE. The PhD of Dr. Aymen Mili "Towards more reliable process control methods by means of risk management : contribution in an integrated design and manufacturing microelectronics plant" at STMicroelectronics in 2006-2009 provided a strong platform for the G-SCOP laboratory to integrate with STM on its core manufacturing processes to reduce process variability with qualitative methods e.g. 8D, AMDEC, FMEA etc. It is because of the excellent results from Mili's PhD which supported the inclusion of G-SCOP lab in the European project IMPROVE in 2009.
The IMPROVE (Implementing Manufacturing science solutions to increase equiPment pROductiVity and fab pErformance) is a joint project with 36 partners across Europe which started in 2009. It is EU funded project (3.5 years) with emphasis on enhancing EU semiconductor fabs efficiency by providing methods and tools to (i) better control the process variability, (ii) reduce cycle time and (iii) enhance effectiveness of the production equipment. Based on the Mr. Mili's PhD, the G-SCOP laboratory initiated and proposed 2 Industrial PhDs and a 3 years postdoc position in this project. The general context and scope of the collaboration with STMicroelectronics is presented below in figure 1. Mr. Bouaziz M.F. (2009-2012) continued the work of Mr. Mili and quantified the risk on the cycle time, product quality and production resulting from the process variability with probabilistic graphical models (PGM). He holds competence in Bayesian and Petri net modeling of complex systems with high level of uncertainty to improve prediction of potential critical events. In the IMPROVE project, Mr. Bouaziz has presented the concept of EHF (equipment health factor) to improve the proactive/predictive maintenance to reduce process variability and improve the equipment availability. Mr. Bettayeb B. (2009-2012) in his PhD worked on the design and improvement of target control plans to minimize the quantified risk (EHF) while optimizing available inspection/ metrology tools capacities. Mr. Sahnoun M. also worked on the same subject during postdoc (2009-2012) and in collaboration with Mr. Bettayeb B. has proposed models using operations research and genetic techniques. The significance and strength of contributions made during the IMPROVE project is evident from scientific publications in international conferences and well reputed journals. The success of these contributions made from the G-SCOP laboratory is a result of diligent supervision from Profs. Michel Tollenaere, Eric Zamai, Samuel Bassetto and Ali Siadat from LGIPM Arts et Metiers Paristech Metz.
Besides the IMPROVE project, G-SCOP laboratory is identifying and proposing key improvement areas within design and manufacturing processes of the semiconductor industry (SI). The Industrial PhD of Mr. Shahzad M.K. (2008-2011) is an example of this collaboration. It is focused on efficient data exploitation from the existing production databases. These production data sources at present are optimized to improve the cycle times and product quality, however they have little support for R&D efforts due to missing links between databases, ontology issues and missing data dimensions. The proposed models within this PhD removes these issues and ensures the utilization of huge manufacturing data collected across the production line to be efficiently and effectively used during R&D efforts. It enables the link from manufacturing to design quick technology alignment and adoption. A new industrial PhD has been proposed (Mr. Anis 2012-2015) that effectively uses the results of Mr. Mili, Mr. Bouaziz and Mr. Shahzad's PhD to dynamically improve the maintenance plans based on the quantified risk (EHF) and efficient manufacturing data exploitation.

The collaboration between G-SCOP Laboratory and STMicroelectronics is the result of joint effort and initiatives from Profs. Michel Tollenaere, Daniel Brissaud, Nadia Brauner Vettier, Eric Zamai, Samuel Bassetto on one hand and Mr. Stephan Hubac and Mr. Philippe Vialletelle from STMicroelectronics on the other hand. The G-SCOP laboratory has successfully established its competence in semiconductor manufacturing processes and improvement link from manufacturing to design (Prof. Michel Tollenaere, Eric Zamai and Samuel Bassetto) besides the competence in electronic chip design (Prof. Nadia Brauner Vettier) and environmental friendly design (Prof. Daniel Brissaud). As a result the IMPROVE project was listed in 10 best European project http://industrialtechnologies2012.eu/best-project-award. The G-SCOP laboratory has also been invited in the INTEGRATE project (expected to start from January, 2013) and we are committed to support the partners in the project specially STMicroelectronics to benefit from academic research in achieving their business objectives and leadership position.
