Our data based offerings for Strategy Advisory, Sophisticated Planning and Investment guidance across the semiconductor eco system:

At Fab Economics, we are a team of semiconductor industry executive leadership (Pathfinding, Technology Development, Operations, Customer Engineering, PMO, Sales, Marketing, Procurement and Sourcing, Materials and Equipment function leadership) across the e-to-e semi value chain (Design to Packaging). Our team includes site level leadership with multi decade execution experience across Intel Corporation, Global Foundries, Samsung, TSMC, IBM, Amazon, and Microsoft. We specialize across data driven Strategy, Operations and Investment Guidance advisory across the Semiconductor ecosystem including following data based offerings:

Fab Economics granular bottom-up Models for site-level Strategy, Planning and Execution of New Fab or ATP site (comprehensive build up of all CAPEX, OPEX structures per Fab or ATP type; uniquely enables us to do sensitivity analysis at site level for any material, process, equipment or capacity change)

Competitive Fab and ATP site level Economics to compare local Government Subsidy Packages and local CAPEX/OPEX cost structures across geographies

Integrated Technology and Commercial Due Diligence across semiconductor ecosystem players (Design Houses, IDM/Foundry, ATP/OSAT’s, Manufacturing Equipment & Materials, and, multiple end market players)

M&A strategy and execution partner covering end to end i.e. scanning and selection for targets and value pockets, followed by Due Diligence deep dives and Pre Merger Integration plan and Post Merger Integration strategy/planning and execution

Growth Strategy Partner across Core, Adjacencies and Inorganic areas (Vertical and Horizontal Consolidation synergy guidance and assessment)
