Case-based reasoning (CBR) helps to resolve this issue: it provides support for decision-makers when solving new problems on the basis of past experiences (i.e., previous cases). Case-based reasoning is an artificial intelligence technology that helps to solve problems by storing, retrieving and adapting past situations or cases. In the case-based system, a case is usually a specific problem that has been previously encountered and solved. Like most humans, when faced with a new problem, a case-based system compares the current problem with cases encountered in the past to determine if one of the earlier experiences can provide a solution. If a similar case exists, the solution to complex problems is found in matter of seconds.
In this paper, we discuss the implementation of a case-based decision support model for semiconductor assembly. The model was used to identify the proper die attach adhesive for a specific package. This exploratory study shows that case-based reasoning plays an important role in packaging material selection, helping both assembly engineers and material suppliers to reduce material selection time and costs.
