In IC foundry business, capacity is the most important task for company to maintain their competitiveness. Since the IC foundry is such a capital- intensive business and capacity expansion is the major capital expense for IC foundry. In last 20 years, IC business has a routine business cycle. Every 4~5 years, it will have up and down turn. In recent years, the cycle became more and more difficult to catch up. A system dynamic model is build up for the IC cycle forecast and 4 capacity expansion scenarios were simulated. The question will be addressed in the simulation is: What is the reasonable capacity expansion model for IC foundry fab?

Product development within the framework of a National Casting Technology Centre

Du Preez, W., Paine., A., Bean, R. January 2006 (has links)
Published Article / The need for a state of the art advanced National Casting Technology Centre (NCTC) has been widely supported throughout industry and recognised as an important facilitator in the growth of the foundry industry. This initiative also aligns itself with the government's Advanced Manufacturing Technology Strategy (AMTS), which is an implementation strategy in support of the South African government's Integrated Manufacturing Strategy (IMS) and National R&D Strategy (NRDS). The AMTS aims at supporting and developing the downstream high technology manufacturing industry, inter alia through the aerospace, automotive and metals sectors. <br>In light of the above and in an effort to retain and expand the current national skills, expertise and facilities in advanced casting technologies, the National Product Development Centre at the CSIR has initiated a process of establishing a National Casting Technology Centre (NCTC). The establishment of the NCTC provides a supportive technology platform for the Advanced Metals Initiative (AMI), which was launched in 2003. <br>The primary objective of the NCTC is to preserve and expand the national expertise and capabilities in cast metals manufacturing by supporting the local casting industry with process development, technology transfer and skills enhancement in order to increase their global competitiveness.

Competitive Advantage Research of Foundry Industry Cluster¡X A Case of T Company

Wang, Chi 20 August 2010 (has links)
Abstract The foundry is a new concept of IC industry. ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute ) make the concept from a lab into a real company. It encourages many people engaged into this field. The foundry industry has become the famous logo of Taiwan¡¦s manufacturing capabilities in the world. The foundry industry made a whole new way to develop a Hi-Tech manufacturing and efficient management company in Taiwan. We could combine well all resource in this field, for example, human resource, knowledge resource, technology resource and financial resource. We are so proud of the IC capabilities and strength we got after developing years. There are no any one company to overthrow our leading position. So T company is my interesting about this topic to research it. From the leading position of foundry field to the biggest IC manufacturing company, Taiwan and TSMC are key roles of the IC stage. The research has two purposes. 1. Realize the importance of an enterprise success though a ¡§cluster¡¨ concept. And an enterprise could promote its economies of scale and enhance its own core competence in cluster conditions. 2. Explain industrial cluster for an enterprise development and competitive strategy application. Key words : Foundry, Cluster, Competitive Advantage

A Study on Industrial Analysis and Competitive Strategy of Semiconductor Foundry across Taiwan Straits

Chen, Chao-Li 16 August 2005 (has links)
Since TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacture Company) foundation in 1987, the "fabless"business model has been also introduced to semiconductor industry. TSMC was the first foundry service company globally and has successfully created a global competitive advantage with prosperity in Taiwan semiconductor industry. Taiwan has been developing into a unique business model that also brings many other competitors worldwide to compete in the same field. Currently, Mainland China showers her interested in semiconductor industry, especially in IC foundry. China can be one of the most important manufacturing centers globally in recent years. The primary purpose of this research is to understand the present stage of foundry play companies as well as the future trends of semiconductor industry across Taiwan Strait .Moreover, this research will focus on the competitive advantages that Taiwan should have to strengthen the dominant position in the mainland China. Recommendations and suggestions will be stated in the conclusion for the future reference of Taiwan foundry industries and official authorities. The research model composes five factors each as Input Conditions,Demand Conditions, Firm Strategy and Rivalry, Related and Supporting Industries, and Government, which are referred to the Diamond Analysis created by Michael Porter. Secondly, collect and analyze the information about manufacturing capacity, market opportunities, and supply & demand relations of major companies between China and Taiwan. After that, this research goes through five kinds of analysis models¡BDiamond Analysis to find out the strength, weakness, opportunity, and threat to Taiwan¡¦s foundry industry. This research reveals that Taiwan¡¦s foundry industry should focus on major competition strategies - technology improvement, service enhancement ¡Bindustry cluster advantage and excellent supply chain management . China is expected to be the next crucial nation by having advantages of big market, low cost on labor and materials, high goverment efficiency, package incentive for foreign investment and etc. Taiwanese foundry play companies must strategically utilize the advantagies from the two sides to implement the division of operating to optimize the allocation in capital,technology, human resource and risk diversification. Meanwhile, the official authorities should provide more supports to the industry under the laws legislation, industrial regulation & planning. In addition, the authorities should use advance view to making policy to assist Taiwan¡¦s foundry industry remaining the leadership in the global competition.

Strategy study of capacity utilization in IC foundry

Chung, Wu-Chia 26 August 2005 (has links)
The profit of semiconductor industry became slight while the industry is mature today, new competitors enter this market with these strategies such as low price, join venture, committed capacity to build up the good relationship of customers in order to acquire order. How do the IC foundries use their competitive advantage to keep growth when they face the forceful competitors? The IC foundries should focus on the development of advance technology, capacity expansion, and keep proper capacity utilization to increase revenue and growth. At the same time, they also need to keep good customer services on production cycle and on time delivery. The study is to discuss the past history, current status, and future developed trend for global semiconductor industry and IC foundry first. Then uses the performance of operation and capacity utilization to do the relative data analysis. Finally, refer the Five-Forces Framework, Diamond Structure, Value Chain, and Dynamic Strategy to find out the competitive advantage of IC foundries, also provide the best proper model of capacity utilization to create the maximum value for customers.
