AS9102B - 3.6 Design Characteristics and form 3

#1
Hi,

We are electronic boards assembly company, dealing with components assemblies and integration. We perform FAI for following customers requests. I would like to understand if Form 3 is applicable for us, because we are not dealing with design characteristic and we are not inspecting dimensions and tolerances.

thanks

The instructions for AS9102B for item 3.6 Design Characteristics describes these as "dimensional, visual, function, mechanical and material features or properties ... as specified by drawing or other requirements." You say you are not inspecting dimensions and tolerances on your electronic boards, but any requirement in your customer's specification, whether you design it or not, whether there is a dimensional drawing or not, should be listed on Form 3 in order to be thorough. Paragraph 3..6 goes on to say "Material features or properties include processing variables and sequences... that could not be otherwise" verified in the final assembly.

I listed the customer's requirements, verbatim, for packaging and labeling on my FAIR, as pass/fail requirements. Because I made a thorough list, that is my assurance that we don't overlook or misinterpret even a mundane requirement, like which corner of the box the label goes on.

I told one supplier I worked with, they had to first article inspect Diode orientation. They asked why, the diodes come from the manufacturer oriented in trays and are inserted automatically, untouched by human hands. I explained a First Article Inspection Report is a one-time check, and that is our assurance against somebody somewhere making a mistake designing the trays or writing the work instructions or programming the robot, which would result in every assembly built with the diode reversed. It might take weeks before that dumb error was discovered, depending on the function of the diode. First Article Inspection is a Risk Reduction activity, and for some design characteristics, there is no more economical hedge against human error. The good news is, I only do the thorough inspection once, until the process changes.

Print notes often contain inspectable information and should be on form 3. For instance, I sometimes see a note along the lines of Conformal coat with Humiseal XXX except for hatched areas(typically connectors and test points). The AS9102 inspector should verify that the board is coated and that any keep out areas were not coated. On form 3 the result should be compliant, pass, or similar (assuming no problems).

Also, if the boards arrive in an array and then you depanel them, customers expect you to check any dimension the depaneling could affect. Sometimes the score or mousebites were improperly located, sized, etc, and the single board will be dimensionally out of spec.
