Just as Stonehenge of England is legend to have been used to predict celestial events such as solstices and equinoxes, Stonehenge Research LLC's unbiased insights and metrics are used to help predict semiconductor industry cycles.
Highly granular supply chain and material resource planning information for the institutional investment community to assist in their analytical and modeling efforts as a supplement to their own research. Providing Supply Chain Analytics for Directors of Research and the Institutional Investor.
Stonehenge Research LLC is engaged in Market Research and Analysis and develops data-driven insights of market, industry, customers, technology and products of Semiconductor and related industries. The MRP Metric is a supply chain analytic that provides a realistic look at semiconductor utilization relating to Fabs and Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturers. Similar to a book-to-bill ratio, the monthly index is a strong indicator for trends in the worldwide semiconductor industry. Stonehenge Research LLC follows the protocol established by the U.S. Department of Commerce in publishing our MRP Metric, typically on a monthly basis, without smoothing of the natural volatility in the semiconductor supply chain. The metric is available monthly, approximately three weeks after the close of each month. Categories covered include front-end (wafer processing/mask/reticle/wafer manufacturing/fab facilities) equipment, final manufacturing (assembly/packaging/test) equipment, and waferstarts.
