A Business Outcome Driven Approach to Scaling Semiconductor Validation
Tight time-to-market pressure in the electronics supply chain is driving many semiconductor companies to focus on automating validation test. However, focusing on test automation does not guarantee the right business outcome. Many other aspects of a validation ecosystem need to be addressed to achieve an effective operation. But what are these other aspects and where should you focus? One possible approach is to start with the question, “What is the desired business outcome and what data is needed to achieve that outcome?” In other words, start by identifying the required data to support the business outcome and work backward to architect the infrastructure you need to attain that data. This can yield dramatically better business results. At this session, explore this approach and compare it with the typical evolution of a validation environment.
