The automated material handling system (AMHS) is a highly automated transport solution of actual 300mm semiconductor waferfabs. The big logistic challenge in such a running system is the just-in-time delivery of lots (carriers). Therefore, beside tracks and vehicles, there are different storages (stocker) and buffers (under track storages and load ports) integrated in such a transport system. To conquer the logistic challenge, an optimum allocation and control strategy for all storage equipment is required. This paper describes the investigation of different storage and buffer strategies based on detailed simulation models of a dedicated semiconductor factory area.
