Critical Process Issues


Reading time ( words)

In our recent I-Connect007 survey, we asked what the top three critical issues are in the production process. Below are just a few of the replies, slightly edited for clarity.

Richard Otte, Promex Industries Inc.: "Complexity of heterogeneous assembly; achieving >98% yield; and time to develop the processes."

Michael Vaintraub, Fineline Global: "Impedance calculation, finding the right production source, and quality assurance."

Tom Borkes, The Jefferson Project: "Component/circuit board mechanical variation; education of workforce; and batch build rather than continuous flow."
