Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training
The Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training addresses topics that are related to all operations that support the production of electronic assemblies. Many people working in the warehouse, logistics, administration and maintenance departments will have had a general education to prepare them for their job. But often the specific knowledge on issues related to the handling and logistics of electronic components, printed boards and assemblies is lacking.
This training deals with this specific information and provides the participants with all necessary information on electronic components, how do they look, what do they do and how do I handle them in a way so they will not get degraded or damaged.
When you receive components do you unpack them all? What is the risk of opening boxes in non-ESD safe areas just to check if all ordered parts are there? What does the marking on the packaging of components tell me? How do I handle the bare boards my manufacturer send me correctly? How do I store components that came back from production?
Just some questions that might come up in receiving and storage areas of electronics production facilities. Questions that will be answered in this training when we discuss the requirements and recommendations found in various documents and standards on these topics. Documents like the IEC-61340-5-X, J-STD-020, J-STD-033 and J-STD-609. They form the backbone of this training. Our trainers will show you the ins-and outs of them and how to properly interpret and apply them.
The Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training is suitable for the following target group:
The Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training is mainly intended for supporting staff at OEM’s, EMS and service providers as well as repair shops. In this training they will gather interesting, important and extensive information to directly apply in their job.
But the information dealt with in this training might likewise be of interest to people working in other areas of electronics industry. One might think of maintenance staff that might come into contact with components, PB’s or PBA’s. Or the sales staff that occasionally would touch an assembly from the production line. Or how about management, proper awareness with respect to parts and assemblies dealt with in production when they show around visitors would be important for them as well.
Application of Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training.
When participants have successfully finished this training they will be able to identify the different types of electronic components, like resistors, capacitors, transistors and the like. They will be aware of the risks involved in handling them, especially the risks of ESD when handled in unprotected areas. Furthermore they will be able to identify components with regard to their moisture sensitivity level and know how to handle them properly to avoid problems and risks. Likewise they will know how to handle, package and store bare boards in the appropriate way. Also they will be familiar with the proper marking and labelling methods and information for leadfree components and assemblies.
The added value of the Handling & Logistics of Electronic Components, PB’s and PBA’s training.
In many of the departments that support the production department the staff working there have had general education and training to prepare them for their job working in a warehouse. Thus they have been prepared for general handling and logistics operations.
In these general education programs the specific issues with handling of electronic components, printed boards and assemblies are not, or at least not sufficiently discussed. It is here were this training comes in. Because of their lack of knowledge logistics and sales staff, even maybe management pose the biggest risk for components, bare boards and assemblies that roam around in the various areas of an electronics producing facility. Educate these people properly so they are aware of the risks and proper ways to handle these items will directly reduce the risk to scrap expensive goods and thus lead to a cost reduction.
