Mr. Purdie stated, “I have enjoyed working with industry leaders that have helped propel Akrometrix to become the leader in warpage management programs within the electronic marketplace. The greatest benefit has been working with the team members of Akrometrix, without which we could never have achieved the success we enjoy today. However, while I have enjoyed major successes with the company, it is time to move closer to my family and spend some quality time with each of them.”

Tribal knowledge is important and quite common in the electronics manufacturing industry—for good reason. Many engineers, technicians, and operators have formed their careers around building PCBs. Some even worked alongside the founding fathers of electronics. Newer, young minds stand on the shoulders of this knowledge base. As a process engineer, I work with operators who have been coating panels with solder mask longer than I’ve been alive. Some know the exact coating parameters required for the toughest of designs. To watch them hand-screen panels is like learning the nuances of a family recipe handed down through generations.

In this interview with I-Connect007, Phil Voglewede, director of the Omron Advanced Automation Lab at Marquette University, shares his thoughts on the evolution of digital twin concepts for manufacturing processes and how that related to his lab’s research.
Current approaches for quantum computing, sensing, communications, and signal-processing rely on superconducting electronic devices that can manipulate or process information at quantum levels of precision.
The March issue of Design007 Magazine took on the topic of tribal knowledge. The magazine posed this question: Is tribal knowledge friend or foe? The articles generally discussed the value and concern of having a significant amount of knowledge locked into peoples’ heads. Articles also discussed how that knowledge can be transferred into automation for both repeatability, quality, and manufacturing cycle time reduction.
