The main objective of this Major Qualifying Project was to minimize the non-value added time of operators inside the metals area of the fab at our sponsor, Skyworks Solutions Inc. The methods used to achieve our goal were axiomatic design, time studies, labor studies, and an engineering financial analysis. Through these methods we identified non-value added steps in current procedures inside the fab that could be minimized. We recommended possible alternatives for saving time in the fab and its feasibility was studied through an engineering economic analysis that showed the possible savings that will yield more productivity inside the fab.
