In the area of nanoelectronic systems design, the term ‘productivity’ is often used as a scoring metric for project success, but up to now, this variable cannot be measured satisfactorily. Consequently, a reasonably accurate project and capacity planning does not exist in semiconductor design.
The project PRODUKTIV+ deals with the productivity of design systems for the design of nanoelectronic systems. Typically, such a design system consists of software tools (for circuit design), libraries, functional units, methodologies, design processes and of course team capabilities (for the use of these elements).The aim of PRODUKTIV+ is to measure (and finally increase) design system productivity.
Design productivity is influenced by many factors like i.e. the quality of the design, the capability of the designer or the performance of the machine. The measurement of performance of software tools (within the design system) is the focus of this thesis. This means automatic data acquisition of the variables which are relevant for the productivity model.
The objective of this project is to design a data warehouse that contains collected design project data for the purpose of data mining for trends in productivity. A second objective is to define an architecture which is able to extract unformatted data from the tools in the design flow, and transform and load it into the data warehouse.
