A Batching Strategy for Batch Processing Machine with Multiple Product Types

Abstract—This paper presents a dynamic batching heuristic for controlling batch processing machine in semiconductor manufacturing. The batch processing machines process several jobs, at the same time, as a batch. When a batch process machine complete its task and ready to start new process, real-time loading strategies should be made to check whether it is best to start the process right away with current products in queue, or to wait for the upcoming products. A new real-time batching heuristic is proposed in multiple-product type single-machine environment with tardiness minimization as a key performance measure. Look-ahead information about future job arrivals is incorporated in decision making. Simulation experiments show that the new batching strategy provides performance of good quality.

Index Terms—batch loading decision, batch processing, semiconductor manufacturing, and tardiness minimization
