Automatic thickfilm conductor testing performed as a 100% test gives a number of advantages if used correctly and well adjusted to the real needs. Though improved yield in production is the essential benefit of automatic test, a number of advantages and perspectives reach other company divisions outside the thickfilm production area. A number of general guidelines help to define the need and calculate the justification figures for a given production. The quality of the test process itself, however, can be an important part of the calculations.
