2018 Winner Profile

Micron Technology, Inc.

Project Description:
Micron Technology Inc.'s memory products are transforming how the world uses information to enrich life. For over three decades, robotic and computer automation have served as the critical enablers for developing and producing the next generation's memory chips. However, automation alone can no longer advance the industry forward -- true transformation at Micron is now occurring with artificial intelligence at the core of every manufacturing process and business decision. Beginning in 2014, Micron initiated a strategy called "smart manufacturing," to bring forth fully integrated data with a focus on predictive insights and automated decision making. Smart manufacturing enables Micron to produce vertically and horizontally integrated intelligence, which is the foundation of the initiative. To date, Micron's smart manufacturing strategy has achieved an astounding 25 percent improvement in time to achieve mature product yield, 35 percent decrease in product quality-related incidents, and a 10 percent increase in overall output.
