I-Connect Survey on Process Step Elimination: Cycle Time Spent on Final Inspection

Reading time ( words)

In our recent survey on process step elimination for the upcoming issue of The PCB Magazine, one of the questions asked was the percentage of total cycle time spent on final inspection.

Around half of the respondents answered they only spend generally between 1% and 5% of their total cycle time doing final inspection of their products. On the other hand, about 30% of the respondents said almost up to 15% of their total cycle time is spent doing inspection, while 10% of the surveyed manufacturers even said they spend even longer time than that when it comes to final inspection.

Ray Pritchard Looks Back at IPC’s Beginning and His Role in Getting it Started

03/24/2017 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
I have known Ray Pritchard for a long time—as long as I’ve been involved with IPC, in fact. He directed the organization for 35 years before turning over the reins. One could say he grew up with the organization—or vice versa. Ray was always a bundle of energy and still is, still joking and warm, a great people person, and I am sure he had a little something to do with the spirit of camaraderie and cooperation that is the hallmark of the IPC we know today.
