  1. 1. Jim Davis 2027 Stillwater Dr ▪ Mesquite, TX 75181 214.502.5772 ▪ SUMMARY A PMP-certified project manager with an MCTS certification in MS-Project. Extensive IT and Manufacturing experience in the semiconductor industry. Key strengths include developing detailed project plans, building effective project teams, and negotiating scope/schedule. Focus of recent projects has included: • Application development & deployment • Application/data entitlement • Hardware/software upgrade • Feasibility analysis PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE TEXAS INSTRUMENTS 1983-Present Project Manager / Business Analyst (2002-2009) Perform project initiation, planning, execution, monitoring/control, and closure activities throughout the product life cycle. Strong organizational skills, ability to prioritize multiple tasks, solid experience with Microsoft Project, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Teleconferencing software.  Managed an international project team, migrating approximately 1500 users from an obsolete UNIX-based desktop client reporting application to a Windows-based web client reporting application providing additional functionality and increased stability. Reduced schedule by over 30% through focused critical path reduction efforts.  Lead team that transferred equipment data for several factories from a proprietary database to an industry standard database, resulting in reduced support costs and increased entitlement for several existing reporting applications.  Co-managed worldwide effort to deploy software upgrades to over 2000 testers, minimizing both unplanned downtime and material processing disruption.  Mitigated risk of unverified reports prematurely overwriting production locations through close communication with stakeholders and implementation of a phased training approach.  Negotiated cost and schedule expectations for decommissioning an application through analysis and communication of several resource-based scenarios.  Fostered integrated use of Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft SharePoint to facilitate both effective meetings and issue tracking/resolution. Application Developer (1998-2002) Develop and deploy Real Time Dispatch (AutoSimulations) programs for several wafer fabs  Developed an algorithm for comprehending several factors (lot priority, reticle, reticle quantity, train length, current lot, line balance, etc.) in building and prioritizing the queue of a $2M stepper. Translated the algorithm into a Real Time Dispatch program for all steppers within a factory, resulting in a throughput increase conservatively estimated at 5%. This program was used as the template for creating similar programs at other factories, significantly reducing the time to deploy.  Created and delivered a Real Time Dispatch training program to multiple factories, reducing the central support cost for the application and enabling factories to develop new dispatch programs and modify/maintain existing ones.  Built several PERL scripts to facilitate Real Time Dispatch installation and administration. Application installation was reduced from several hours down to less than one hour. Training Manager (1996-1997) Initiate, design, and implement training programs to transition over 500 employees from a lab to a cleanroom environment. Manage a staff of 8 exempts & non-exempts.  Designed, developed, and delivered cleanroom protocol training to over 500 employees in less than two months using computer-based training technology.  Provided introductory Manufacturing Execution System training to over 300 engineers, technicians, and specialists in less than two months, again using computer-based training technology.  Negotiated the sponsorship of a company vice president to resurrect the “Skills Upgrade Program”, designed to improve the math and reading skills of all specialists and technicians. 090402LHH
  2. 2. Jim Davis 214.502.5772 ▪ Page Two PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE (continued) Wafer Fab Manufacturing Section Manager (1989-1996) Manage various wafer fab manufacturing sections (Diffusion, Implant, Deposition, Photolithography) with emphasis on several metrics (cycle time, throughput, etc.). Coordinate annual non-exempt compensation process. Participate on the Operational Methods Strategy Team.  Managed manufacturing team of over 70 exempts, non-exempts, and contractors in advanced Photolithography section. Implemented aggressive cross-training program, resulting in significant throughput gains and cycle time reduction.  Managed manufacturing team of over 50 exempts, non-exempts, and contractors in Diffusion, Implant, and Deposition sections. Developed and adopted cadre specialist program, leading directly to process yield gains.  Served as Operational Methods Strategy Manager, helping define requirements for a next generation Manufacturing Execution System. Participated on a team to promote nomenclature standardization as a means for facilitating communication amongst factories.  Coordinated annual compensation process for over 200 non-exempts, introducing a process that quantitatively linked ranking to increase amount and type. Wafer Fab Manufacturing Supervisor (1988-1989) Supervise 2nd shift wafer fab manufacturing operation of approximately 15 employees.  Supervised 2nd shift Diffusion, Implant, and Deposition operation of approximately 15 employees. Highly favorable metrics led to a Section Manager promotion in less than one year.  Identified and drove both a process change and machine reconfiguration at one operation to eliminate yield loss due to human error, estimated at over $100K/year. Design Support Engineer (1983-1988) Develop circuit simulation programs to identify faulty analog/digital components in defense electronics systems.  Developed test programs for numerous analog and/or digital circuit boards.  Served both formally and informally as a lead engineer.
