Standards Gap Analysis

Standards Gap Analysis (SGA) is designed to enhance the financial success of IPC member companies. The service offered by IPC, examines your current manufacturing processes to uncover inconsistencies in accordance with IPC standards. Additional areas in your manufacturing process will also be reviewed based upon your specific needs or customer requirements. Upon completion of the analysis, IPC will provide you with a confidential report highlighting areas where your manufacturing process can be improved to reduce defects, scrap, or rework, and enhance the quality of finished goods, or increase production throughput. If you are an OEM, an EMS, a fab house, wire harness and cable provider or a supplier, SGA might be the right service for you.
