KSA Matrix - Supporting Data for Fig. 7.3

Below downloadable KSA Matrix MAPT.xlsx shows knowledge skills and abilities (KSA) mapped to corresponding job functions in the semiconductor industry. The KSA matrix was developed based on the inputs from experts across the semiconductor industry. The content of the KSA Matrix should adapt to the dynamic changes in the landscape of semiconductor talent requirements. To contribute with inputs and help keep the KSA matrix up to date with the current trends in the industry, do the following:

1. Download the file KSA Matrix MAPT.xlsx

2. Review the called “KSA Matrix”

i. Review rows for functions in semiconductor industry.
ii. Review columns for skills required in semiconductor industry.
iii. For any suggestions on new functions and or skills, append new rows as shown in the example.

3. Email the spreadsheet with feedback to kashyap.yellai@src.org

In addition to the SRC developed KSA matrix, readers can use below resources developed under the sponsorship of U.S. Department of Labor / Employment and Training Administration

  1. Advanced Manufacturing Competency Model -> Semiconductor – Nanotechnology Manufacturing Competency Model: The competency model framework for advanced manufacturing can be used to identify competencies (KSA) and enable educators, businesses and government to gain insights and make informed decisions. The tiered (grouped based on skills) approach competency model will guide users in finding competencies at various levels such as foundation competencies to more technical competencies.
  2. O*NET OnLine: Provides occupational information for about 900 occupations that can be used by counselors, human resource professionals, researchers, developers and students.
