Intel to re-structure its manufacturing arm into 3 new divisions
Intel is reportedly re-arranging its manufacturing arm. This may come as a response to its recent supply issues. In addition, the long-awaited move to 7-nanometer (nm) processes has been deferred to 2019. The 3 new divisions that will supposedly arise from this re-shuffle at Intel will handle specific aspects of chip-making concerns at the company.
These new segments will be overseen by Venkata Renduchintala, who formerly held an executive position at Qualcomm. They will be known as the Technology Development, which will be managed by Mike Mayberry, who is also Intel's Chief Technology Officer (CTO). The two other new segments are Manufacturing and Operations and Supply Chain, to be managed by Ann Kelleher and Randhir Thakur respectively.
There are no indications as to what precisely this move within Intel is intended to achieve. However, it may have further positive effects on the 10nm production process at the company, in addition to delivering the new 7nm release deadline.
