Course length:5.0
Overview:This course provides the necessary skills and hands-on experience to program a
product to be populated on Universal Surface Mount machines that run UPS+
software. The students will use Dimension Programming and Optimization (DPO)
programming and line balancing software and/or UPS+ software to program and
debug programs.

Since UPS+ is used on many differing Universal Instruments platform machines,
we cannot guarantee that the machine that you train on will exactly match the
machine in your factory. However, the fundamental programming concepts
delivered in this course will apply to all UPS+ platform machines.

Customers who use CircuitCAM Express software to convert CAD and/or Gerber data
into product information may require additional training, beyond the scope of
this course. Refer to the CCE course description for more details.

Note: Some of the content in this course can be learned via our e-Learning
training modules, which are available to Universal customers via a My Universal
Who should take this course?This course is designed for programmers who are required to create products for Universal Instruments surface mount platform machines.
Prerequisites:• Ability to use a computer keyboard and mouse/trackball to navigate in a windows environment.
• Capability to identify SMC components by package and lead types.
Required Materials:A classroom with the following:
• 1 PC per student, loaded with DPO off-line software
• 1 PC for the instructor, loaded with DPO off-line software and connected to a projection device.
• Machine availability, dummy components, boards, and double-sided tape are required the first day and the last 1.5 days of this class for Operation, Enhanced Component Setup, product debug, and Exit Test hands-on activities.
