The Presentation: A-620 Case Studies – How Implementation of a Global Standard Can Increase Your ROI
As the only universally recognized wire harness and cable assembly workmanship standard, IPC/WHMA A-620 facilitates communication between OEMs and manufacturers in regards to unique build specification and quality management.
