BEST PRACTICES FOR IMPROVING MANUFACTURING PRODUCTIVITY – Parts 1 and 2 @ APEX Conference
Feb 26 @ 12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

You have the responsibility and resources to improve the productivity of an assembly operation….what do you do? This course drives awareness and solutions to the adverse impact that non-optimal assembly practices and processes have on the product quality and financial success of electronic assembly businesses.

The Assembly Brothers (of BoardTalk) – Phil Zarrow  and Jim Hall present  a comprehensive perspective on problem issues is developed for the most currently critical electronic assembly process, materials (both existing and emerging), equipment, procedures, and methods. Most importantly, practical solutions are presented. Key issues that consistently result in assembly problems and low yields are identified and resolved. This seminar is intended for anyone involved in directing, developing, managing and/or executing assembly line operations including managers, line supervisors and line engineers involved in manufacturing, design and quality engineering.
