Part of the Springer Series in Advanced Manufacturing book series (SSAM)


The semiconductor industry has a supply chain network that is distributed all over the world, and its manufacturing process has the particular characteristics that should be considered in supply chain modeling. In this chapter, we suggest integrated mathematical models for the semiconductor industry supply chain consisting of production and distribution chains, where manufacturing reentry, binning, and substitution are considered. Four models, push-production, balance-production, target-production, and pullproduction model for the production chain and two models, push-distribution and pull-distribution for the distribution chain are suggested with mathematical formulations.
