Kodiak Assembly Solutions Case Study: Test Solutions
The customer was experiencing poor first pass yields of their printed circuit board (PCB) assemblies from their current CM. A growing bone-pile of defective assemblies caused frustration. Resources were wasted spending days trying to debug the CM’s poor quality.
Kodiak Assembly Solutions developed an electronic test solution utilizing the Takaya Flying probe system. With electrical verification and test, the assembly quality levels soared to 99.9% first pass yield.
The customer quickly caught up with their production requirements and was able to save valuable resources by refocusing their technicians on other duties.
Case Study: Assembly Solutions
A LED Products company supplying roadway, parking, and commercial lighting solutions were frustrated with the quality and lack of flexibility from their overseas CM. For years, the management team “thought that high volume assembly had to be cheaper overseas”.
Kodiak Assembly Solutions met with the LED Products management team and worked to prove that a North American supplier could be cost-effective and satisfy the flexible needs of the demanding end-customers. Over the next year, Kodiak Assembly Solutions proved to not only be competitive but in some cases, less expensive than the overseas suppliers. A true win-win solution!
Case Study: Materials Management Solutions
A Gas Detection products company was experiencing large swings in requirements. Their current CM was unable to react or provide materials management solutions to alleviate the supply issues.
Kodiak Assembly worked with the company to understand the variability of the requirements and developed a materials management plan that would ensure supply continuity.
The plan entailed a combination of distributor materials bonding and onsite safety stock which solved the supply issues with minimal added inventory exposure.
