An Analysis of Contemporary Printed Wiring Board Manufacturing Environment in the USA
MetadataShow full item record
This article presents" a comparative analysis" of contemporary printed wiring assembly (PWA) batch manufacturing systems employing surface mount technology (SMT). This analysis is accomplished by reviewing a typical case study of PWA manufacturing system in the USA. A previously developed model is then applied to the system to predict the cost and performance in the production of typical PWA designs. Various modifications to the system are then proposed and evaluated. From the case study, conclusions concerning optimum manufacturing system configuration for this industry can be drawn and are presented.
