ADVANCED PROCESS CONTROL SYSTEM AND METHOD UTILIZING VIRTUAL METROLOGY WITH RELIANCE INDEX

Fan-Tien Cheng (Inventor)

Research output: Patent

Abstract

An advanced process control (APC) system, an APC method, and a computer program product, which, when executed, performs an APC method are provided for incorporating virtual metrology (VM) into APC. The present inventions uses a reliance index (RI) and a global similarity index (GSI) to adjust at least one controller gain of a run-to-run (R2R) controller when the VM value of a workpiece is adopted to replace the actual measurement value of the workpiece. The RI is used for gauging the reliability of the VM value,
