Happy Holden to Conduct Tutorial Workshop at SMTAI


Reading time ( words)

Independent consultant and I-Connect007Contributing Technical Editor Happy Holden will conduct a half-day tutorial workshop, “Ten Essential Skills Every Process Engineer Needs To Acquire” during SMTA International 2017. The tutorial program will be held at the SMTA International Conference in Rosemont, Illinois, on Monday, September 18, from 1:30pm to 5:00pm.

This tutorial workshop has been developed to provide working process engineers with the understanding of critical application skills required for a successful career in the electronics industry. These 10 were selected from a larger list of “25 Essential Skills” that will be available in October as a free e-Book from I-Connect007. These are ‘soft’ skills that are usually not acquired through traditional education, but have to be learned on-the-job to improve one’s opportunities for advancement.

The three and one-half hour Workshop will introduce these 10 essential skills:

  • Total Quality Control (TQM & 6-Sigma)
  • Design of Experiments
  • Problem Solving Skills
  • Developing a Figure of Merit
  • Design for Manufacturing and Assembly
  • Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Automation Planning
  • Computer-Aided-Manufacturing
  • Dimensional Analysis and Dimensionless Factors
  • Quality Functional Deployment (the House of Quality)
  • Ten-Step Business Plan

This Workshop is suitable for anyone looking to improve their performance in the electronics industry.

Top 10 Most-Read SMT Articles of 2017

12/29/2017 | I-Connect007
Every year, we like to take a look back at the most popular SMT news and articles. These are the top 10 most-read SMT articles from the past year.

Evaluation of Stencil Technology for Miniaturization

12/22/2017 | Neeta Agarwal, et al.*
SMT stencil printing technology continually evolves to keep pace with device miniaturization technologies. Printed circuit board assemblers have numerous new technology options to choose from, and need to determine the most effective ones to produce the highest quality and most reliable solder interconnections.

Solder Printing Process Inputs Impacting Distribution of Paste Volume

12/14/2017 | Marco Lajoie and Alain Breton, C-MAC Microelectronics
The volume of solder deposition, like any process, has variations that may be characterized by a statistical distribution curve, whether normal or non-normal. As complexity, density, cost and reliability requirements increase, there may be value in narrowing the distribution curve. It is common sense that less variation serves the interest of quality of the more complex and dense circuit boards.
