Steve, Basically in answer to your question, there is no real set number for defects. Defect rates will vary between products and companies. If my company was running the same product as yourself then there is no reason to suggest that the defect ra

O.K., folks, I know this is a loaded question, but I've been asked to find the answer, sooooo: What is an acceptable defect rate in ppm for a surface mount process, assuming that each component has the potential for one defect. This would include de

It makes a difference what the normalizer is. We calculate solder ppm and placement ppm separately for each assembly. Solder ppm = #solder defects*1E6/(Qty boards*#solder joints per board). For us this number is easily less than 50 and sometimes

Thanks, Mark. Actually we already have an established mark. We use 500ppm (99.95%) as our acceptable level. Problem is, someone (another manufacturer) told someone else (our pres.) that THEY build to 50ppm. Soooooo, someone else told my boss that

My old company (CM) ran SMT to 50ppm including some very complex boards. We established the normalizer number by: #components + #solder joints. As was stated earlier, the ppm for any given product is the result of many factors. You may get differen
