Our group were one of the first companies to produce distribution level interface electronics for TFT LCD’s. We have come a long way since shipping those first units but our methodology of quality, continuity and traceability of supply remains a constant.
We use the SAP manufacturing system and every part of the TFT display kits we produce has to have a unique part number and we have to operate full change control through PCN’s and follow ISO9001 which we are certified for. We are familiar working with Hi-Rel companies involved in the military, medical and process control markets where this traceability is essential.
Within our SAP system a kit will generally prefix with two letters either KI or KU, and can consist of a BOM with a minimum of 2 parts.
Our LCD/TFT Display Kits can be broken down into two types:
The majority of our displays are configured with a controller card, and internal cable sets. Each of these combinations are set up as an LCD display kit. This ensures a single part number can be ordered at any time and our customers can be guaranteed consistency.
If one of these internal parts changes, the revision of the complete LCD display kit is rolled.
More often than not, our customers require TFT display kits that are slightly different to a standard kit, maybe a different firmware. In these situations, unique part numbers are created for each customer's TFT display kit, again ensuring that traceability and consistency is guaranteed within each and every one of our TFT display kits.
This could also include the different ways the internal components are handled, i.e. a medical company may require 100% incoming testing rather than batch testing. A unique part will identify this requirement and ISO procedures ensure the process.
