  • Changed the SMT workshop production model, shortened the entire production cycle from 14 days to 2 days, changed the island-style production layout due to the long ageing time, and shortened the assembly time from 7 days to 1 day
  • Solve the product steady-state/burn-in test problem, optimize the filament firing process, reduce the defect rate from 3% to 0.4%, i.e. more than 85%
