This paper describes the functionality, applicability, and the development of dependency maps which are the basis for standardized information exchange between responsible parties during the fab design process. Examples and experiences are related to the solar industry; however this generic approach may be applied to a wide range of different industry sectors with similar challenges. The aim is to provide a guideline for realizing a fab design of dynamic and complex production systems. Its main benefit is a higher degree of transparency regarding dependencies within the production system, which results in a reduction of risk for incorrect planning. In addition, it enables the factory designer to execute the fab planning process and further continuous improvements for achieving respective targets.
