IPC Workshop: Quantifying the Major Sources of PCB Process Variability.

Sunday, March 23, 2003: 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.
Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California, USA
Presented by Mario Perez-Wilson
Workshop Text Workshop Description
Book: Analysis of Variance Is the variability affecting your Cu Plating Process coming from within a board, board-to-board, within panel, panel-to-panel, across the flight bar, flight-bar to flight-bar, within a tank, tank-to-tank, within a shift, or from shift-to-shift?

Or is it really coming from day-to-day variation.

There are a multitude of sources of variability in PCB fabrication processes.

These processes are complicated systems comprised of mechanical, chemical and electrochemical processes.

Analysis of Variance is the key to unequivocally quantifying these sources of variability and then conduct statistically designed experiments to correct the problem permanently.

We would be exploring key PCB processes and how to determine their sources of variability.
