a. Describe the need or problem addressed by this activity.
(Indicate the customer, what benefits they will receive, and if possible, quantify the impact on the return on investment [ROI] if the Document is implemented.)
Document 6109 was issued for Reapproval Ballot to satisfy the five-year review in Cycle 9, 2016. Comments were received from the Reapproval Ballot, which required failing of the Document. SNARF 6109 was abolished at the Spring 2018 meetings, and this new SNARF issued to incorporate and address the negatives and comments that were receive.
b. Estimate effect on industry.
4: Slight effect or effect not determinable
Sector or Company Information:
c. Estimate technical difficulty of the activity.
I: No Difficulty - Proven concepts and techniques exist or quick agreement is anticipated
Describe the technical areas to be covered or addressed by this Document development activity. For Subordinate Standards, list common concepts or criteria that the Subordinate Standard inherits from the Primary Standard, as well as differences from the Primary Standard:
Address the negatives as follows:
-Eric Sklar of Safety Guru rejected the document for five (5) negatives. Reviewed the negative with the TF. SG01, SG02, SG03, and SG04 were deemed editorial in nature and can be addressed by SEMI during release. SG05 Section 5.2.2 will be reviewed from a technical standpoint. It is proposed that the changes will be a line item ballot.
Matt Milburn of UCT presented the following:
1. Investigate the layout of the test set up. Matt believes that the test set up cannot be accomplished as shown in the existing revision.
2. Investigate temperature influence and add establish temperature testing parameters
3. Not applicable for IGS components
