Abstract Title: Semicond. back-end manufacturing: roadmap and future needs.

Abstract: Semiconductor back-end manufacturing is undergoing an impressive transformation, touching basic technologies, such as 3D printing, spatial integration plasma dicing and jet gluing, as well as the organization of work, calling for a new human to machine interaction and forging a new model for workers: the cognitive worker. Last but not the least, the data analytic that will allow predictive maintenance on production machines, die pairing and optimal job scheduling.
In short: a fully algorithmic manufacturing model.
