Semiconductor manufacturing is a capital-intensive industry that capital utilization rate significantly affect the capacity effectiveness and final profit. Capacity portfolio planning strategy must coordinate capacity expansion and migration decisions in balance for utility maximization for smart production and supply chain effectiveness. Manufacturers have to determine capital investments based on various demand forecasts of products in advance for long lead time in manufacturing process. Rapid development in semiconductor technology makes it difficult for companies to estimate future tool requirement especially for new-generation products planning decisions.
