5 Process Documentation

The process documentation module is used to specify process-related parameters and create a Job Instruction Sheet. Where possible, this information will be extracted from the production data. But there are several parameters which should be specified or checked by the engineer at this stage.

A process list is set up, based on the number of copper layers and buried vias (if any). Processes in this list may be enabled or disabled as necessary. For each process, a row is printed on the Job Instruction Sheet with the specified process parameters, together with a sign-off matrix.

For some processes (such as sheet cutting, v-cut or beveled edges), additional mechanical drawings are added. A detailed stackup drawing and a drill template drawing are also generated.
