Annexure :

Craig Barrett, Chairman of Intel at the date of this interview, describes how Intel turned manufacturing around in the mid-eighties to not only best Japan, but also to take them to the number one position in semiconductors. In it he reveals how Copy Exactly evolved and was essential to the turn-around; how it guaranteed a virtual second source that was better than any outside second source. He also defines refsnart, which is transfer spelled backward, why it cost them so much, and how they ended it. He also describes the Intel U that they put an end to. Since then, Intel has ramped yields from development to volume manufacturing across multiple fabs without hick-ups. You’ll find out the processes behind this and more.
