Bliss Ind. Inc., a provider of cart-based productivity tools for the electronics assembly industry, has published "Profit-Driven Manufacturing (PDM)," a white paper detailing the PDM process intended to improve SMT line throughput by 40 percent.

PDM exposes a fundamental inefficiency among today's electronics assembly lines (downtime on the bottleneck) and provides solutions. Further covered in the white paper is a worksheet for OEMs and EMS providers to determine the degree at which this is a problem at their assembly facilities.

The PDM process forces the bottleneck of the SMT manufacturing line to be positioned on the pick-and-place machines and then build processes that categorically ensure maximized productivity in that bottleneck.
