Description: Maintaining cost decrease per function, reducing cycle times, improving reproducibility and equipment effectiveness while reducing the environmental impact of the factories are key challenges to be addressed to keep the competitiveness of European SC manufacturers. Manufacturing Science is the main enabler that will allow overcoming these challenges.  IMPROVE aims to enhance European semiconductor fabs efficiency by providing methods and tools to better control the process variability, reduce the cycle time and enhance the effectiveness of the production equipment.
