As Program Manager at INFICON FPS, Holland Smith directs Smart Manufacturing systems architecture and installation projects at 200mm and 300mm fabs across the world. Mr. Smith is a semiconductor data systems expert and a contributing developer of the INFICON FPS Data Warehouse, which enables advanced Fab Scheduling, optimized WIP movement, and other related capabilities of the INFICON FPS product suite. Mr. Smith owns the INFICON FPS Capacity Model product and has published white papers on automated calculations of key forecasting measures like throughput and cycle time that enable Smart manufacturing systems to model the future of a fab with high fidelity over different time scales.
Prior to INFICON FPS, Mr. Smith worked as a Technology Development Engineer at Intel D1D/X in Hillsboro, OR, specializing in Atomic Layer Deposition thin film process development as well as subfab improvement projects for harsh deposition processes. Mr. Smith led several data integration projects including pioneering work to unite disparate subfab and fab-level data sources into an integrated and actionable system. Previously Mr. Smith also worked designing automated experimental data acquisition and analysis systems for semiconductor characterization at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Mr. Smith earned a PhD and M.S. in Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Solid State Physics and a B.S.with Honors in Engineering Physics from University of California Berkeley, as well as a B.A. with Honors in Slavic Languages from Stanford University.
