Presentation Hall ICM - Internationales Congress Center München SEMICON EUROPA > SMART Transportation Forum > Session 2: Comprehensive Overview on Disruptive Technology Requirements for Smart Driving
12:55-13:15 h | ICM - Internationales Congress Center München ICM Room 14c, 1st Floor
Subjects: SEMICON EUROPA
Chairman: Andreas Aal (, Volkswagen AG)
The Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 revolution is underway and already driving changes throughout the supply chain. A comprehensive Digital Twin of a factory is the backbone of this initiative and can deliver significant improvement in classic factory Key Performance Indicators including Cycle Time, On-Time-Delivery, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, and Cost. Another aspect of Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 is its enablement of new capabilities which can improve the fundamental quality of products as well. These “quality centric” capabilities are key to meeting the quality levels expected by the Automotive Industry to support the deployment of autonomous driving vehicles. This talk will provide an overview of existing, in development, and future Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 solutions for the Semi Industry and their impact on the Automotive Supply Chain.
Mr. Behnke has 35 years of semiconductor industry experience including: logic and memory manufacturing, technology/product development and fab operational excellence. As the GM of Final Phase Systems an INFICON Product Line, John leads a team that develop and deploy SMART software solutions that enable fabs to improve their manufacturing efficiency. FPS’s suite of software solutions are built upon a common Datawarehouse which enables advanced Fab Scheduling and optimized WIP movement as well as other related capabilities. He is also a Co-Chair of the Semi North America Smart Manufacturing Special Interest Group. Prior to FPS John served as the CEO and President of Novati Technologies, the SVP and GM of the Semiconductor Group of Intermolecular, the CVP for Front End Manufacturing, Process R&D and Technology Transfers at Spansion and the Director of AMD’s Fab 25’s Engineering and Operations groups where he was a founding member of AMD’s Automated Precision Manufacturing (APM) initiative which led the Semiconductor industry’s development and use of APC and other advanced factory systems. He also led the successful conversion of Fab 25 from Logic to Flash memory which was enabled through the virtual automation of the fab.Mr. Behnke earned a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering with an Industrial Engineering Minor from Marquette University. Mr. Behnke holds five U.S. patents.
