Documenting PCB Milling Process
Created by: skeatz
PCB milling process is documented in detail in Electronics Production week. Is it a requirement for students to still include a pic of their pcb being milled for each and every board that they make subsequently? E.g. in Electronics Design or Input Devices, so long as the student documents the schematic design, board layout, shows the milled board before and after stuffing, shouldn't it be enough?
If we require students to include a pic of their pcb being milled, for every board that they fabricate, then it should be made clear. We should also then specify whether this pic is of that board at the beginning, the middle or the end of the milling process. Perhaps even make a video of the milling process mandatory for every pcb.
Reason for raising this is because one of the global evaluators has fed back to one of my students that he should have a pic of each of his pcbs that he has milled in weeks subsequent to Electronics Fabrication, in his documentation. Documenting the design process (schematic, board layout) and milled board before & after stuffing is not sufficient, according to this evaluator.
