Benefits of Conducting IPC Certification in Your Workplace

Building Consistent Products

Consistency is key to profitability and industry success. Educating staff on IPC standards provides guidelines for the efficient production of a consistent product. Consistency in manufacturing methods and final product specifications has a direct and positive correlation to consumer satisfaction and repeat business.

In terms of industry compliance, failure to follow the most widely accepted set of IPC standards results in a “massive duplication of effort costing the industry millions of man hours in waste and creating industry chaos and global non-standardisation.” An organisation’s level of internal consistency should mirror industry best practices to guarantee optimal production symmetry and cooperation.

Improving Cross-Channel Communications

Miscommunication can lead to inconsistency and delayed production. In the OEM and EMS industry, it is crucial that vendors and manufacturers use the same terminology and practice the same standards. IPC certification ensures that this is the case. Employees and managers from all sides of supply channels confirm the benefits of IPC certification in cross-channel communication and attribute their success, in large part, to speaking the same language. When cross-channel interactions are streamlined, overall production time and coordination is improved.

Reducing Costs

When a company is able to produce consistently and streamline cross-channel communications and interactions, what follows is a natural reduction in production costs.

The requirements laid out in IPC courses ensure that each product, at each stage in the assembly line and process, is evaluated and serviced under the same scrutiny as others. This will not only reduce costs by decreasing the number of rebuilds and reworks, but also improve production time. These certifications ensure that your operation employs a higher standard of quality control.

After receiving or renewing your IPC certifications, you’ll find that your ability to efficiently produce a consistent, high-quality product, and communicate with other vendors/manufacturers in your supply chain, becomes significantly simpler. These certifications not only enable your company to become a trusted provider within the industry, but also allow for future business growth as understanding Class 3 standards is highly recommended when working in the Defence / Aerospace / Medical / Aviation Industries.
