|Paperless Laboratory: Increased Efficiency and Traceability in Microelectronics Assembly|
|Keywords: Effeciency, Traceability, Assembly|
|Choosing a partner for your high-value-added microelectronic assembly program requires an organization capable of best-in-class production methods and one that can be trusted with valuable materials, IP and product integrity. Preparing a product for successful volume manufacturing using an automated, unified, paperless manufacturing and data management system enables situational awareness of all aspects of the assembly, starting with process development and continuing throughout the assembly life-cycle. Data is automatically collected and exported from the assembly equipment's core software and sent to an analysis application which creates graphical and numerical documentation of the performance data, which can be output to both local and remote sites for monitoring and further analysis, e.g., with SPC software. Data is stored in a time-stamped fashion, allowing for both time and event-based trending of key variables, producing a clear picture of process status. Process and equipment performance data can be viewed across multiple applications, multiple locations, multiple machines and multiple platforms.|
