Janis Stacy's Summary

Can I help you get what you need done?

I have experience in New Product Introduction (NPI) and manufacturing support for semiconductor digital and mixed signal products from concept through end of life. My skills enabled me for performing NPI work on multiple products simultaneously and meet milestones. Our teams won awards from Apple, SUN, Netcontinuum and others.

-Strong skills with problem solving and pulling together teams which includes using 8D, DMAIC and mapping techniques.
-Created new solutions for a variety of technical problems. -
Specified and ran qualifications for processes, process changes, packages and products which included negotiating L1 and L2 qualifications.
-Contributed and approved of DFM during the design phase and generated test plans.
-Ran analysis of product margins, CPK, Qualification(s) results and correlated ATE to Systems proving devices were ready for manufacture at minimum cost.
-Analyzed customer returns, assembling the appropriate teams if needed, finding short or long term solutions as needed and coordinating with customers for rapid resolutions.

-Generated project management schedules, risks, costs, materials and facilities for making prototypes, device verification, device and customer qualifications, customer and production.
-Successfully built solid working relationships with both internal and external groups in Europe, Asia and the Americas for achieving project goals.
-Effective management of projects, direct reports, groups and mentor for less experienced engineers.

Janis Stacy's Experience

Semiconductor Professional - Semiconductor Product Engineer - Customer Quality - Project Management


Self-Employed; Myself Only; Architecture & Planning industry

March 2008Present (6 years 7 months)

Currently consult on approaches for identifying problems and finding solutions.

• Highly experienced in new product development (NPD), New Product Introduction (NPI) and manufacturing support for semiconductor digital and analog mixed signal products from concept through end of life.
• Strong skills with problem solving (including using 8D problem solving) and team working abilities which have resolved 100% of encountered problems.
• Created new solutions for a variety of product problems in testing, assembly and design which decreased costs and field returns. Decreasing cost on a networking product by 40% from originally projected.
• I’ve specified and run qualifications for processes, process changes, packages and products for meeting or exceeding corporate and customer requirements.
• In the design phase, I contributed to DFM and generated test plans. At times, devices required new or updated equipment for manufacturing and I drove enhancing manufacturing capabilities without delaying the product development schedules.
• During development, functional and production problems come up. I worked with teams for finding the root cause, generating solutions and kept customers involved during development. I explained technical and tactical problems to customers clearly and coordinated the supply chain with them for delivering the product they needed. Problems were resolved without impacting customer development schedules and we won customer supplier awards from Apple, SUN, Netcontinuum and others.

Consulting, Diversity


January 2008Present (6 years 9 months)

• Consulted on approaches for identifying defects and inherent process characteristics in advanced processes (45nm, 32nm, SOI). In one instance, the data was used and the end customer altered the component specification for maintaining system performance.
• Generated an analysis of ReRAM feasibility, ramp up time and likelihood of successful deployment. My analysis suggests ReRam could very well displace Flash.
• Marketed a non-profit group of over 1000 professionals to local corporations. I modified the group’s marketing approach from advertising toward meeting corporation’s needs and procedures for talent acquisition.
• Drove development of a new diversity track within a diversity conference which over 2600 professional and diverse people attended in 2012 and we expect about 2800 in 2013. Also participated in and provided diversity training to corporations, organizations and universities improving some cross-cultural working relationships within various groups.
