This article presents a complete business model for Failure Analysis (FA) as a high tech provider in the world of microelectronics. It starts with the definitions of a business process, and analysis flows as foundation are discussed. Then, a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) based operation is developed. The implementation of such a model in a FA lab is discussed with the interdependencies of workload and cycle times - the pipeline management. This opens the path to quantitative target setting agreements with the customers. A complete system builds a database that can calculate all the parameters for a FA lab tailored exactly to the demand of the customer. Such a database acts as a reference lab and represents best FA practice.
