SKU: ITM-LVHM. Categories: , .

Product Description

In many regards, Low Volume electronic assembly can be far more demanding than manufacturing high volume of a product.  Add to this a high mix of products and the challenges involved in maintaining quality and efficiency become very perplexing.  Sadly, many low volume – high mix manufacturers succumb to the difficulties and this becomes apparent at the bottom line.

This Coursebook (as used in the ITM Low Volume – High Mix SMT Manuacturing workshop)  examines the complications of low volume assembly and presents concepts and adaptations that work.  Based upon the collective low volume-high mix manufacturing experiences of ITM consultants (Joe Belmonte, Phil Zarrow, Jim Hall, Bob Klenke, and Ron Lasky) , Design of process, documentation and inventory management and even application of SPC are all discussed.
