E07000 - SEMI E70 - Guide for Tool Accommodation Process

Volume(s): Equipment Automation Hardware
Language: English
Type: Single Standards Download (.pdf)

This Guide provides an overview of the various elements of Tool Accommodation, a methodology by which semiconductor processing equipment is installed in a cost-effective and timely manner. This addition to the SEMI Tool Accommodation Standards set describes the process by which the referenced SEMI Standards can be effectively used to achieve tool installation cost and schedule goals.

This overview Guide provides process development, facilities, manufacturing, and sales engineers (as well as purchasing agents and managers) with a basic understanding of the various elements in a Tool Accommodation methodology. This process emphasizes quality, completeness, timeliness, and cost-effectiveness as key elements of successfully installing semiconductor processing equipment into wafer fabrication facilities. By describing a generic process flow, this document identifies a road map for using published standards that comprehend all the procedures involved in tool accommodation from procurement through acceptance. As a common ground for communication and comparison, terms and definitions are also included.
