Reading time ( words)

Rigid-flex circuit board manufacturer Printed Circuits Inc. has hired Ed Andrews as their director of quality systems. As an ASQ Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence and Lean/Six Sigma Green Belt Certified, Ed is ideally qualified to take PCi’s quality management systems to the next level.

Printed Circuits Inc. President and CEO Ken Tannehill said, "The circuit board manufacturing process, particularly rigid flex manufacturing, is comprised of 40 some highly interdependent processes. It takes a very unique individual who can grasp the interdependence, putting quality systems, SPC and checks in at each stage of manufacturing in order to improve our overall quality results and delivery performance. I am very excited to say we have found that individual in Ed. He will continue to be active in the Minnesota chapter of ASQ, as well as increasing PCi’s participation in IPC standards and conferences.

My Thoughts From the Virtual Show

04/11/2021 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
Gosh, I sure missed the live event! I listened in on several technical sessions, the awards ceremony, the keynotes, and the Hall of Fame management session. I tried a couple of professional development courses but got the frownie face on my screen and didn’t go back in. I have almost 90 days(!) to browse them to my heart’s content, so what the heck. There were good points and a few not so good things about this first ever virtual conference. You probably experienced some yourself.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

04/09/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
In this week’s roundup, we have news about a new DFM environment from Siemens EDA, a 2D field solver from Avishtech, and a milestone for the IPC-CFX-2591 QPL. We also have a great article by Calumet’s Audra Thurston, who points out the many advantages of a virtual trade show. And in his latest column, Denny Fritz explains why the DoD is now thinking like many U.S. OEMs—worrying about single-source components, for instance—but the stakes are much higher.

Technical Conference—Balancing Conventional and Disruptive Technologies

04/08/2021 | Matt Kelly, IPC
I thought the three keynotes given by IPC President and CEO John Mitchell, Industry Week Editor-in-Chief Travis Hessman, and IPC Chief Economist Shawn DuBravac, were spot on. They all spoke to the fact that the way products are conceived, designed, manufactured, and used is changing rapidly. While the keynotes had different focus areas, I noted an important similarity—they all underscored the need for increased industry collaboration to help bring the factory and supply chain of the future to life.
