Job Description

As a Metrology/RDA Engineer in MSB, you have the opportunity to work with a cross functional team from different areas of the plant. You will meet regularly with the process areas to understand their tools and processes so as to create measurement recipes that can provide quick and accurate feedback on the product integrity, thus ensuring quality output. As technology advances, you will be constantly challenged with the need to innovate for newer, faster and better modes of monitoring. Besides working with the process areas, you will also liaise with vendors to explore best known methods to maintain high tool performance and embark on possible ways of cost reduction to ensure our product retains its competitiveness in the market. Additionally, you will be working in a clean/non-clean room environment.


Responsibilities and Tasks

  • Provide first level of support for engineering requests, recipe maintenance, tool recovery and basic troubleshooting of tool issues

  • Collaborate with Manufacturing, Equipment and Process Engineering teams to set daily priorities and enable efficient communication.

  • Provide support and liaise with tool owners and vendors for long term down equipment, tool installation, relocation and upgrades, Preventive Maintenance (PM) and/or Corrective Maintenance (CM) schedule on tools

  • Ensure all Special Work Requests (SWRs) are processed correctly and in a timely manner

  • Collaborate with Production, Equipment and Process Engineering teams to optimize tool maintenance schedules and utilization

  • Partner with Process, Equipment Engineering and capacity teams to determinie sampling strategy to meet Production, Process Control and Quality requirement


Monitor and ensure all Metro/RDA tool meet measurement and inspection standards.

  • Set up tool qualification criteria, implement, monitoring through Statistical Process Control (SPC).

  • Make decisions on how to address tools and products that are out of control for established SPC rules for both process and defect related issues

  • Develop and manage projects designed to reduce cost, reduce tool measurement variability, improve availability, and find solutions to ongoing problems

  • Partner with Process, Equipment Owners and vendors for equipment upgrades/enhancements to improve tool performance

  • Perform periodic assessment, tool-to-tool matching and GR and R, etc. to ensure tool measurement accuracy.


Evaluation and enable next generation tool to close metrology gaps.

  • Partner with the metrology/inspection tool vendors to develop new hardware, software, and technologies.

  • Work with Manufacturing, Process and Equipment team on tool/product requirements.

  • Perform tool evaluation and buy-off


Seek and drive methodology breakthrough to improve efficiency in metro/rda function.

  • Drive process improvement through new recipe creation that helps to provide accurate and faster feedback to the line, thereby improving the confidence level of the product.

  • Participate in world-wide discussions for continuous improvement on the toolset(s) assigned across Micron sites.

  • Set up processes, design and implement process monitoring, control methodologies.

  • Establish business process standards, specifications and documents.

  • Continuously Improve the Reaction Mechanisms and Procedures based on feedback from the end users.

  • Work with peer groups to test and vet new Reaction Mechanisms and Procedures

  • Write and publish reports that summarize projects, detection capability improvements, manufacturing productivity and cost reduction work.


Mentor, coach and train
