Abstract:

Solder paste printing is the first step in the surface mount manufacturing process for PCBA assembly. When the solder paste printing process is uncontrolled, defects can be produced, which may not become apparent until the PCBA is downstream. (...)

This paper will discuss how Lean Six Sigma techniques were used to optimize the solder paste printing process. It will highlight how a cross-functional team used the structured Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology to identify and control the critical inputs. The advantage of the Lean Six Sigma methodology is that it guides the team through the rigorous structured process so that all possible inputs are considered and the critical ones can be identified....
