Another question we asked in our recent survey on process step elimination is about productivity. What are the factors that would help improve productivity in your PCB manufacturing facility?
Is it utilizing the best technology out there? Or is it automating certain, if not all, processes in your production? What about employee morale, what is its impact on the overall productivity of your line?
Majority of the respondents in our survey consider technology as among the key factors that would impact productivity, and one comment is that new product adoption is slow and expensive due to qualifications, thus slowing the speed as to how fast designs flow through to production. Next is process simplification and automation, followed by employee morale.
