Procedural Augmented Reality Systems in the Fabrication Facilities

The main goal of this project is to reduce training time, improve maintenance standardization, and provide just in time information during maintenance. Projector-based augmented reality systems will reduce the knowledge transfer barrier between experts and novices.  They will also improve maintenance consistency and provide just in time information to improve tool availability. The potential impact on industry practice is to increase standardization in maintenance procedures by following augmented reality.  Reduce number of technicians and training required to maintain advanced semiconductor manufacturing.  The project will investigate a small three-five step procedure augmented reality system that demonstrates the following Augmented Reality knowledge transfer techniques: augmented reality highlighting, arrows or other attention getting mechanisms, short video, diagrams, text, and animation. The identified benefit is improved safety, reduce maintenance variability, increase tool availability, and reduce technician training costs and time.
