What are you going to do?

As owner of the defectivity and Cleanliness roadmap, you formulate and regularly update this roadmap. The translation into an actionable plan is the next step. You align with the manufacturing and assembly sites on their current defectivity and cleanliness challenges and you formulate plans to resolve any bottlenecks on way-of-working, metrology, and cleaning methods.
