Wearguard manufactures a wide variety of clothing that includes boots and jackets for construction workers, as well as business casual wear for executives. The company's headquarters in Norwell, MA contains a call center with between 50 and 60 agents who work within separate teams but handle calls together in the same room. Christina Shortall, an operations manager at Wearguard, explains that each team works toward a specific goal each month, such as meeting sales quotas.

Equis' Cariola suggests another way to take full advantage of the space you already have. Through a process Cariola calls staged occupancy, you can add staff incrementally rather than opening an entire center at once.

The shift to pull manufacturing is one of the biggest developments of the past five to 10 years, said Jack Maynard, an analyst at Aberdeen Group, Boston. Under pull manufacturing, a company may build a PC, for instance, but hold back a final version until an up-to-date forecast based on sales data tells it whether customers are more likely to buy a PC with X processing speed or Y.

She noted that lead times for delivery of critical production tools, such as wafer steppers, have stretched out to nine months. Even if they have their shell, they are at least a year away [from production], she added.

TSMC's planned 12-inch wafer fab, now under construction in Tainan, Taiwan, has been renamed Fab 14 from its original designation as Fab 7. This facility is currently slated to become TSMC's first high-volume 12-inch wafer fab, starting operations in Tainan's Science-based Industrial Park during the fourth quarter of 2001. The initial capacity of Fab 14 has not yet been determined, according to TSMC.

Now, based on research going on at Bell Labs, it looks like the industry is going to gain some breathing room. Researchers believe that tried-and-true silicon dioxide will work as the gate oxide for the upcoming crop of 0.07-micron ICs, even when the gate insulation layer is thinned to 15-angstroms or less. That's good news because silicon dioxide is well-known and has a 30-year production history.

The product of Qsw and RDS(on) is known as the figure of merit, for the control FET. The objective is to reduce Qsw and RDS(on) in order to reduce that overall figure. This is an overwhelming challenge to silicon designers, since reducing one of these parameters usually means increasing the other parameter. There is a range of silicon platform technologies to choose from and the right one has to be selected in order to optimize for the figure of merit as described.

Managers of small and large centers who answered the LeapFrog! survey cited comparable rates of overall annual turnover, although the type of turnover rates for large and small centers did vary slightly. We described turnover as positive when agents moved from call centers into other positions within the same company, and we defined turnover as negative when agents left call centers either voluntarily or involuntarily.

Of the 508 seats at the site in Ottawa, Compaq has 420 seats for agents who take calls about Compaq's products, 71 seats for agents who answer questions about Microsoft's products and ten seats specifically for Compaq's Canadian customers. There is room at the center for 100 more workstations.
