Necessary items are to be clearly labeled.6/7/2013 XX – MAIN CELL CELL OPERATION AREAS • • • • • • • • • • • Each work bench will use shadow boards for tools or have taped out space for items that belong on horizontal surfaces. Only necessary items are to be present. No trip hazards At no time should food items be found within the ESD protected cell area. All necessary items present and in their proper location at end of shift. The stand up area should be free of chairs. Cords and cables should be neatly dressed or stored and off the floor. Work Instructions are posted on the company web site and will be open and used for each build sequence.

Water skipper carts are to be left in taped out locations except when in use. All part locations for storage are to be marked on both the front and back of flow racks. SFGI and SFGI OVERFLOW: • Instruments will be placed on the approved storage racks/locations in an orderly fashion. etc.6/7/2013 SUPERMARKET: • • • • • Flow Racks should be clean. Personal notes.

They are to be returned to storage at the end of the shift or when finished working with them. Items on the bench top and shelves will be neatly organized and clearly labeled. Items in the cabinet will be neatly labeled and stored. The top bench drawer should contain shadow boards for tools. equipment and reference material to be shared by bench partners. Page 7 of 14 . • As fixtures are needed they are moved to a work bench. Items used less frequently than on a weekly basis but are still needed for current work activities will be stored in the storage cabinet. All items in this cabinet will have a designated and neatly labeled location for storage. • Fixtures are to be stored in designated locations or taped out floor locations when not in use. TROUBLESHOOTING TEST FIXTURE STORAGE: • Each fixture is to be labeled with name or part number.6/7/2013 XX Cell – TECHNICIAN AREA TROUBLESHOOTING AND REPAIR Technician bench tops and shelves are for tools. The bottom drawer will contain neatly stored and organized reference material such as personal copies of schematics or personal notes and other reference materials. TOOL and MISC EQUIPMENT STORAGE: Items infrequently used and shared by technicians will be kept in a storage cabinet adjacent to the test fixture storage. The only items to be stored at the bench are those items which are used frequently throughout the week.

In the event of an unplanned absence. • Work surfaces shall be clean of stains and debris. the desk area should be organized and labeled well enough to allow a person with general knowledge of the role to take over with a minimum of difficulty in understanding what stage various tasks were left in and where necessary records are stored.

As items move into the staging area the white board will be updated with the following information: • • • • Date in Who is responsible Reason for the item being in the staging area What needs to happen for it to move out and/or expected date for it to move out As items leave the staging area they should be erased from the white board so that the white board is always up-to-date with the current content of the staging area. Page 9 of 14 . Items in the area should be reviewed at least on a monthly basis to be sure they do not linger for long periods of time without action. This is not a location for storing parts or collecting unnecessary items. how long it is expected to be stored there. STAGING AREA: Items in the staging area are instruments staged for work activities that are not part of the cell daily rate or are waiting for some support activity. This area should be audited as part of the end of shift clean up activities each work day. Examples are: • Code 5 warehouse returns • Waiting for rework • Production Hold. Items kept in this area must be labeled with the following information: • What it is • Why it is in quarantine • Who is responsible or owns the items/problem • Date the item went into quarantine and if known.6/7/2013 QUARANTINE: The quarantine area is used to temporarily store material or instruments being evaluated or with some kind of problem causing it need to be kept apart from supermarket inventory.

Rejecting parts in a timely manner ensures we can keep appropriate inventory levels and have knowledge about leading edge quality problems. Engineers will make the final determinations as to whether these parts can be used “as is”. Material Handlers process these items on a daily basis by transacting them in Oracle. Exceptions should be brought to the shift managers attention so that additional help can be called for as needed. Cell lead desk tops have clearly marked bins for parts coming off the line as material needing to be rejected. These bins are not to be used to deposit reject parts for any other reason. Page 10 of 14 . 2. No part should linger in any one location for more than two business days. This ensures the correct individual gets the appropriate feedback for corrective action in the future. Cell lead benches also have separate bins for returning reject parts to each shift cell leader when the reject tags have not been properly filled out. As they do so. Once rejects have been appropriately labeled and transacted by the cell lead.6/7/2013 REJECT AREA: Reject parts must be clearly labeled and should be found in only one of three areas: 1. This work should generally be completed before leaving for the day. returned to vendors or discarded as scrap. 3. Cell leaders print the appropriate tags and do all necessary quality record entries. they are moved to the black bins on the reject carts adjacent to the staging area. the material is moved to the orange bins for an engineering review prior to having the parts scrapped.
