About the Lab

The Modeling and Analysis of Semiconductor Manufacturing Laboratory at Arizona State University is housed in the Industrial and Management Systems Engineering department. Professors John Fowler and George Runger are co-directors of this lab. Each has extensive industrial experience; Prof. Fowler spent 4.5 years at SEMATECH and 1.5 years at Advanced Micro Devices, and Prof. Runger spent 6 years at IBM. Their resumes, along with those of the associates of the lab, can be found in the Personnel section of this site. The lab is focused on how modeling and analysis tools and techniques can be used to improve semiconductor manufacturing. The lab has most of the commercially available software that is currently being used in the industry to model and analyze semiconductor manufacturing. The lab has had research projects with NSF, SRC, International SEMATECH, Intel, Motorola, Infineon, ST Microelectronics, Tefen, Amkor, Abpac, and TSI.
