The main task this time is to perform an audit, a very good tool for checking the status of the factory, finding improvement areas and go to action. I’m travelling together with two PCB experts, our Group Quality & Technical Manager and our Technical Manager in Sweden. I’m very proud having this strong team when reviewing the factory – both of them know PCBs by heart.
First time I visited a PCB factory, 14 years ago, I was really surprised products are actually coming out and working – there are so many production steps to go through and to control. During the years, I’ve learnt a lot from our factories and my colleagues about PCB production and what it takes to make it work. Doing the audit, going through the factory in detail and give feedback, is one way to support
our factories to continually improve. It gives a good view of what is working well and what areas to be developed. The approach is always about seeing the opportunities, not pointing finger. Only by working together we can reach the common target – to fulfill what we have promised our customer.
Close cooperation is a source of inspiration to me – hope it is the same to you!
