Framework for Developing a Knowledge Warehouse Towards a Resilient Semiconductor Assembly and Testing Firm

Dah-Chuan Gong, T. C. Hou, Phuong Hoang, Brett Peters, Ping-Shun Chen
2021 IEEE Access  
Resilience emphasizes the recovery capability of a firm after an event of disruption.  ...  This paper proposes a framework in constructing a knowledge warehouse (KW) to increase a semiconductor assembly and testing firm's resilience by using a backcasting approach, which consists of four steps  ...  Second, if the mathematical function of a firm's resilience can be found and represented by a Pareto frontier curve as shown in Figure 10 , research on the strategic planning can be further evaluated.  ...

Chapter 7 The economics of fertility in developed countries [chapter]

V. Joseph Hotz, Jacob Alex Klerman, Robert J. Willis
