A definitive fab supply chain analysis?


Active member
I know there are a lot of good articles and posts here regarding various pieces of the supply chains required to support Foundry/Chip Fab Services.

I was curious are there any "all up" analyses anywhere (paid or not) that cover nearly/literally everything required to supply an operational fab? Something maybe getting into what kinds of resources are needed, where they come from, the 'risk' for those supply sources, etc?. Even if this is "too much", is there something that covers maybe certain basic pieces like - what's required "all up" for "clean wafer" production or a sub component like that?

I imagine this is something the big fab companies have (hopefully) extremely well documented via Fellow-class resources, but I was just curious if there was anything more public so I could educate myself on the topic? I'm interested both as a (non-chip) engineer and enthusiast of the sector.

P.S. The info. I'm looking for doesn't even need to be remotely modern..
