Survey on Cable/Harness Yield
In May 2009 (see the article here), we asked our customers about the metric used to track their test results. We wanted to know what was most popular and how pervasive the uses of such quality metrics were. In addition, with the influence of Six Sigma quality, we were curious what was an opportunity used as a divisor in their quality calculations. Here is what we learned.
Do you gather (track) yield data or failure rates when testing?
If you get a failure during test, how is such a failure counted?
How do you present the data? (Multiple selections OK)
Of those that track yield data: Do you use
What is an opportunity?
If you use selected "defects per some kind of opportunity", what represents an opportunity? Of those reporting something other than 1 opportunity per cable (Such as used for FPY) Most people reported using the number of terminations as the number of opportunities per defect.
