AOI false fail PPM

AOI false fail PPM | 23 July, 2008

Can anybody know the acceptable PPM (part per million) on AOI machines on Low volume-high mix also on High volume-Low mix.

We are a Low volume-high mix company, we have Agilent SJ50 Series 3 machines

Can anybody have the idea how many PPM are good?

330 000ppm on low volume.

what is the parameter you are talking about? PPM on AOI?

PPM on AOI, this is our metric for false fail on AOI machines.

Our target is 1000 ppm but I'm not sure about this target for low volume. (1,000 false fails on 1000,000 of inspections)

Anyone else? This is an interresting question. With 1000PPM won't your AOI be worse then the process it is supposed to measure? Won't your AOI become more of a bling thing to impress customers than an actual usefull tool to improve process quality?

Aren't you worried about false passes? With that low of false fails, you must be only inspecting easy stuff like presence and not checking for correct parts.

We are in the process of determine our target.

We are inspecting with all the options Presence, Joints, OCV, Polarity, etc.

What would be an average of ppm on AOI? 1000, 5000, 10000? Low volume - High mix.

our machines are Agilent SJ50 Series 3

I don't know about that machine but 5000 wouldn't suprise me.

And make sure your targets is less than X false fails with zero false passes.

I can probably get zero false fails with any machine but I"m sure a lot of defects would get past that machine.

Just make sure you keep your eye on the real goals.

First all, you must define the specific defects that you wanted to screen out by your AOI system based on its capability, so you can allocate the undetected defects on your other means of inspection methodology. Then optimize your AOI inspection parameters balancing the escape and the false failure rate. Keep in mind that as the false failure rate becomes lower, the defect escape rate is getting higher.

Currently our AOI goals were at: <100 PPM escape rate and <2000 PPM false failure rate. Low and high volume goals should be the same.

With AOI it really depends on what you are testing. Not only what criteria, but what different types of components. We run a high volume low mix application for automotive checking for presense, positional accuracy, and all solder joints. We currently see about 20ppm false fail rates and 1-2 ppm escape rate. Although our application is extremely high volume, we have very few differnt types of components. We are also not looking for polarity, bridging, or OCR. With today's machines I think that 1000ppm false fail and 100ppm escape rates are reasonable for normal applications. Again, adjust that number up as the component mix increases.
