Has anyone out there successfully switched from First Pass Yield to DPMO metrics and most importantly, sold MGMT on the change?

It has been mentioned that DPMO offers large advantages over First Pass yield calculations for measuring process performance!!regarding the same I have a few queries: What are the benchmarks for using DPMO as measures of process performance? How is

To be honest with you, it doesn't really matter how you present the data, as long as you understand what the problems are. Bottom line is who cares what the numbers are unless you are doing something about it. Are you able to track the individual de

Dave et al, I just print out and read a copy of the aforementioned recommended article. Mr. Mangin gives a clear picture of why DPMO is to be considered a more pure data than First Pass Yield (FPY). However, I must note that his interpretation of h

The DPMO is a far better measure - first pass yield doesn't give you any indication on quality or effectiveness of test step. If you want 100% first pass yield, test nothing - works every time - you see where I am coming from..........

To clarify on "Opportunities"- With 1000 components, the opportunities are far greater than 1000. You have 1 opportunity per component for a component defect i.e. bent lead, damaged part, tested bad, etc. You have a second opportunity per component

I would think it would be more productive to compare DPMO. Particularly across different products. A simple board of 20 components should yield much higher than a complex board of 200 components. Also, some consideration should be given to the dif

Not sure if you're trying to improve your defect rate (we use dpmo) or your test yield. The question is what do you do if you're happy with your dpmo levels but not some of your first pass yield numbers because certain boards have more parts. Inspe

In the past year I was responsible for developing and leading a Team focused on AOI, Evaluation, Justification, and with a full ROI required, supporting a HMLV manufacturing environment. If you have in these economic times the additional resources t

DPMO as a metic to qualify a CEM as World Class

i would say that you are there already. with 10,000 DPM0 you have a 1% fallout, you are at 99.9 basically. 1 out of a 1000 boards will fail? of course one thing we need to know is how many opportunitites do you count for a chip resistor for exam
