This will be a key position to provide critical cost information to the organization to drive down the front-end manufacturing costs for CMOS imaging sensors.
Primary: Develop cost database and “Should Cost” models for CMOS image sensor manufacturing processes (wafer fabrication and color filter.) Collect and/or estimate the cost data for relevant fabrication processes. Analyze cost variances for internally and/or externally initiated Engineering Change Orders, and provide technical and financial justifications for such changes. Conduct risk analyses of cost estimates. Support proposals from estimation through management reviews and pricing negotiations.
Secondary: Identify and review with functional organizations opportunities to reduce costs. Support Engineering and Operations on ad hoc duties as needed
• Business (Financial) Acumen
Accurately perform quantitative cost calculations: understand implications of cost data on our own work group and other work groups; integrate cost data effectively allowing for identification of key issues, decision-making criteria, and determination of strategies and plans.
Understand customer requirements, proactively solicit inputs from others and enhance understanding. Clearly communicate messages and ensure understanding. Accurately interpret messages from others and responds appropriately.
Work experience in the semiconductor fab plants; understand the CMOS manufacturing processes, tool requirements, manpower requirements, and material usages.
• Estimation Methodology
Preferably to have complete and specialized knowledge of estimating techniques and relationships used in practical application (e.g., cost models, cost estimating relationships.)
Business (Financial) Acumen
Education: Bachelor's and 10+ years of relevant work experience, or Master's with 8+ years of related experience
