    iNEMI is the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative. It's Roadmap was recently finalized, and it will be published this spring. The SCV Chapter will get a preview from two of the key committee people who worked on it.

    Since 1994, iNEMI (the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative) has been developing a biennial technology roadmap spanning a ten-year horizon. In 2004, iNEMI expanded the initiative to proactively include global inputs.

    In this presentation, an overview will first be given on the 2007 iNEMI Roadmap to be formally released in February 2007. The iNEMI Roadmap objectives, process, methodology, organization and structure will be outlined. This will be followed by a more detailed discussion on the Board Assembly chapter of the roadmap, including both business and technical aspects.
