    Sunday, October 7
    8:00am – 5:00pm
    Osceola 1

    What You Will Learn
    Statistical process control (SPC) is the foundation for high yields in SMT processes. In light of this fact, this full day course will cover the basics of how to setup an SPC program for SMT assembly. At the end of the course the participants will be able to establish a basic SPC program for their SMT process and use it in a continuous improvement plan to improve yields and profitability.

    Who Should Attend
    Process, design, test and quality engineers; process and quality technicians; operators and managers.
