11. Feedback. A feedback loop needs to be established that conveys information regarding the performance of, and problems associated with various parts back to their original designers. For example, every time a part fails to meet cleanliness requirements, and it is determined that nothing has gone haywire in either the vendor or the in-house cleaning systems, the responsible design/development engineers need to be made aware of the incident, since they must share (to varying extents) in the responsibility for the failure. Investigations of line-rejects and line-down situations involving contamination-related causes should be conducted by teams in which the part-designer is integral. The design group should have access to, and be
familiar with, parts cleaning data, problems and history during the life of every precision assembly product.
This list is by no means exhaustive, nor is it meant to be. Rather, it is designed to create a mindset among design/development engineers that cleanability, just like manufacturability and ease of assembly, is a key price-performance issue that needs to be factored in at the outset. In the highly competitive microelectronics marketplace, effective contamination control, when properly integrated with product development, may turn out to be a big advantage. This concept has more recently been discussed in more detail in Ref. 3.
