Failure Analysis Procedure
In all of these cases, AKM prevents recurrence of the problem by feeding back the failure analysis results to the source of the failure (design, wafer manufacturing, assembly, inspections, etc.). In this way, the analysis results are used for continuous improvement of the quality and reliability that is built in to each process.
Failure Analysis Flow
Figure below illustrates AKM’s failure analysis flow. Defective products or intermediate products found in AKM’s processes are also analyzed in this flow with coordination with related departments.
