What Makes an Effective Daily Fab Status Meeting? (Issue 25.03)

Welcome to Volume 25, Number 3 of the FabTime Cycle Time Management Newsletter. In this issue we have announcements about an FOA Webinar that Jennifer will be presenting on cycle time and about the FabTime team’s first INFICON in-person User Group Meeting. There’s also a head’s up about an upcoming need to re-subscribe the newsletter, together with our usual highlights from industry news on LinkedIn. Our software tip of the month is about using FabTime to drill down into root causes, with a detailed example from our demo server.

There’s a plethora of subscriber discussion in this issue, about standby-WIP-waiting time, value stream mapping (which two different people brought up), software for predicting outs, WIP Turns rates, and test wafer ratios. In our main article, we revisit the topic of what makes an effective daily fab status meeting, ranging from general thoughts on meeting purpose and structure to specific ideas about content that should be included.
