Title: Methodology for distinguishing the cost of products in a multiple partnumber, multiple technology, fully or partially loaded semiconductorfabricator

Abstract: A method of, computer system for, and computer program product for causallyrelating costs to products comprises, identifying resource costs formanufacturing the product, computing load factors for each of the resourcecosts, producing weighted resource costs based on the resource costs andthe load factors, summing the weighted resource costs for the product,determining a volume of the product manufactured, and dividing theweighted resource costs by the volume to produce a weighted cost perproduct.
