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.
