Bugs in YOUR Process?

August 23, 2019

Are you looking to build your product(s) better and faster?

Are you suffering from poor first-pass yield or struggling to meet metrics for ramp-to-volume?

Then a Process Optimization Audit (POA), delivered by the knowledgeable team at the Advanced Process Lab (APL ), is just what you need. . .

Optimize your processes . . .


In today’s highly-competitive environment, assembly process performance is absolutely crucial to profitability and market reputation. The fastest and most cost-effective route to streamlined, efficient assembly flow is to optimize and refine your processes!

Luckily our Advanced Process Lab (APL) can help with this by conducting a detailed process optimization audit, which equips you to meet targets for:

  • Yield

  • Quality

  • Efficiency

  • Throughput

The POA can also help you eliminate any BUGS in your PROCESS, deliver  cost savings and add additional revenue to your bottom line!  Read on to learn more . . .

So, how does a Process Optimization Audit work?

We follow a proven and established methodology during the audit. The steps and timing are agreed to by both parties and include:

  • Review application including assembly processes, materials, quality standards

  • Determine current assembly yield (and reliability) issues

  • Perform process audit

  • Document and present process audit findings

  • Discuss findings and recommend changes to assembly process and/or materials

  • With your approval, implement agreed Process Audit recommendations

  • Review improvements

  • Deliver final report                   

Less bugs, can lead to BIG savings!

Once you’ve optimized your processes, you can expect to enjoy some or all of the following benefits:

  • Reduced material costs through lower rework and process optimization

  • Reduced labor costs through lower rework and less unplanned maintenance

  • Assembly efficiency increase by reducing assembly time and process steps, delivers:

    • Faster pay-off on capital equipment

    • Lower utility costs

    • Increased opportunity for equipment maintenance

    • increased equipment reliability

    • Reduced work in progress
