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.
