|Optimizing Product Cost with Supply Chain Cost Modeling|
|Keywords: cost modeling, advanced packaging, supply chain|
|Demands on the electronics industry for smaller, better, and cheaper packages have made the supply chain more complex. Outsourcing, new technologies, and increasing performance requirements make designing and building the right product for the right price more difficult than ever. We will present a framework for understanding and managing the supply chain through cost modeling. Cost models that accurately reflect the cost impact from technology and design decisions enable a more precise understanding of supply chain behavior. Cost models can show the extra cost of adding a layer, the expected savings from relaxing design rules, or the cost of package on package assembly compared to 3D packaging with through silicon vias (TSVs). The models also provide context to understanding the|
