The production area for printed circuit board assembly, when one considers the requirements of automation, is really no different from planning any assembly area Perhaps the difference with automatic assembly machines is the shift of emphasis from storing components in the separate stores, to storing large volumes of components on the machine, but at the same time retaining the facility for rapidly re-kitting the machines when the kits are depleted or the job requirement changes. Clearly the type of machine or machinery used also effects the planning of the production area.
