When to use IPC ?

At the very early stage of the production. ( 1% to 10% of the production complete)

Why is it useful even if you have a perfect sample ?

Because the manufacturing method and equipment used for samples are often very different from actual mass production.

 

Because this service would allow to spot potential problems very early in the production when there is still time to conduct certain corrective actions.

Because it’s better to prevent then to cure.
