Automate Quality Control

Electronic industry operations should consider value of making quality an automated, closed-loop function. By Georgi Nickolov Stoilov, Technical University, Branch Plovdiv, Bulgaria


Electronic industry operations should consider value of making quality an automated, closed- loop function. Georgi Nickolov Stoilov, Technical University, Branch Plovdiv, Bulgaria On- line automatic quality control (AQS) in the electronic industry can learn from the specialized literature in the field of electronics and automatics. Experts like Deming, Juran, Feigenbaum, Krosby, Ishikava, Taguchy, etc., have papers and books, treating the economic aspects of quality management and control. As a result of their efforts, off- line quality control systems (computer aided quality systems– CAQS) came into being (see column 2 in the block diagram). These systems are more quality management systems than quality control systems. Automatic quality control (AQC) at that stage was not yet mature. The first block- diagram [1] shows the sequence order of tasks (horizontally and vertically); their distribution with respect to their object or problem; methods and devices for quality monitoring and estimation type off- line and on- line in CAQS, etc. The AQC- systems (AQCS) have not been completely developed yet. Quality control (QC) problems will always remain. The first block in thethird row shows the main tasks of any manufacturer, primary obligations of factory management. Other blocks in the third row show necessary basic steps across every link of the production chain.
