It is recommended that components be inserted via automatic or
semi-automatic component insertion equipment whenever possible. This
ultimately prevents components from being inserted backwards or in the wrong
location. If such equipment is used, the sequence and placement of components
must be validated by "first piece" inspection. When using automatic polarity
checking with this equipment, the accidental application of high-voltage
pulses must be prevented.
Manufacturing personnel should verify their own work prior to submitting an
assembly to inspection.
Components that are sensitive to ESD or voltage transients should be
protected via appropriate containers and workstation
