All the changes in the manufacturing process with the new solder alloy components and component composition in terms of metallic chemistry has to be tested for reliability with the older units as baseline along with the specification. This requires covering the entire supply chain starting from gathering component data to assembly processes. It is necessary for the business to have the testing rigor to calculate life expectancy since reengineering a stable product line for the ROHS compliance has to at least have the reliability exhibited by earlier designs and field service data. The process to execute the required ROHS compliance initiated by the required component data to PCB manufacturing and final product assembly is discussed.
