STMicroelectronics has a spirit of innovation in the development of chips, continuously modifying its production processes for improving performance. This is why it is interested in creating ’generic models’ of their manufacturing processes and keeping them updated in spite of the high number of modifications demanded. It is specially interested in capitalizing experts’ knowledge. In this article we explain ideas for constructing models for STMicroelectronics manufacturing processes using experts’ definitions. The importance of our approach resides in the construction of models that constitute a step forwards to the implementation of an alarm control system over processes modifications.
