Positrol Plans and Logs

Positrol Plans and Logs is the first book to explain the tools used to control the independent variables and variation during production. This is a critical element of the Total Control Methodology, TCM.
Book Description Table of Contents
Presents an unconventional, but successful approach to controlling processes during production. It is a method by which the input variables of the process are controlled, instead of monitoring product output variables after the fact.

A full description of how to design Positrol Plans and Logs and how to implement in production is presented. It explains how Positrol Logs are used to provide and maintain traceability of process changes during production. It covers detailed implementation of Positrol Plans and Positrol Logs with a Solder Paste Printing process.
