Academic Researchers Eye Supply Chain Management

Research carried out at Lehigh helped convince Agere it could speed up the factory planning cycle for its semiconductor assembly and test facilities, according to Chris Armbruster, supply chain strategy director for Agere. The Center for Value Chain Research has a group working on these types of problems, said David Wu, the leader of the center, which is funded by the National Science Foundation. Wu is also professor and chairman of Lehigh’s Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. “We come in with a small team, a couple of faculty and graduate students typically, and come in with a fresh perspective. In this case, we first built a simulation model,” Wu said. We ran simulations, what are the pros and cons? We build the study and Agere provides real data. Then we present the results of our findings, creating software prototypes, and hand over the tools we developed.”
