Target 10-OK Data Table

Target 10-OK is a simple yet powerful way to achieve the pursuit of the perfect profile. The user specifies requirements for the profile initial slope, soak, TAL (time above liquidous), peak parameter and the channels that these requirements are to be applied. Then the software automatically calculates a single go/no-go number.


A Target 10 specification is created using the Create Target 10 Specification workflow wizard. Refer to topic Create Target 10 Specification for more information.

Important Information

The features associated with Target 10-OK can only be used when in Engineer mode. They can only be viewed when in Verify mode.


Target 10-OK feature allows the user to answer the following questions:

1)How do I specify a good profile?

Answer: Based on the selected process specification and specification limits, the user can set the four process parameters (Initial slope, Soak, TAL & Peak).

2)How do I know I have a good profile?

Answer: Based on the specified settings, the active individual parameter indicators (Slope, Soak, TAL & Peak) display the normalized values. Once Target 10-OK numbers are calculated, they reduce the evaluation of the displayed data run profile to a single number. This number appears in a two state (Red-Green) indicator with the worst condition number appearing in the Final Indicator symbol.

A score of less than 0.0 is bad, 0.0-5.0 is good, 5.1-9.9 better and 10.0 being the perfect score.
3)How can I improve the profile?

Answer: Using the Prediction Tool, the user can change zone temperature values or the conveyor speed and adjust the outcome toward a perfect 10.0.


Target 10-OK features:


1)Process Parameters: Initial slope, Soak, TAL & Peak parameters derived from the associated paste for the currently selected data run.
2)Limit Adjustment: Upper and lower specification limits from the selected process for each parameter. The user can adjust these as needed to meet their requirements.
3)Parameter Values: Actual values derived from the current data run.
4)Normalized Values: Parameter values in the data run converted to a single number based on a 0-10 scale. The software takes the parameter value then determines where it is in respect to the upper and lower specification limits. If the actual parameter value is in the exact center of the specification limits the normalized value will be a perfect 10.0.


Example:  The Peak Temperature has an upper limit of 240.0°C and a lower limit of 195.0°C. The software subtracts the upper limit (240.0°C) from the lower limit (195.0°C) equaling (45°C). Then the software creates a 0-10 scale by dividing the 45°C by 20 equaling a scale of 1 point for every 2.25°C.

If the actual parameter value for channel 1 is 210.0°C. The software then determine where that value lands on the 0-10 scale. In this case it is 15°C higher than the lower limit so the software divides the 15°C by the scale value of 2.25°C which equals at 6.7 on the scale.

5)Worst Condition: Once all of the Target 10-OK numbers are calculated into normalized values, the software reduces the evaluation of the displayed data run profile to a single worst condition number for each process parameter.
6)Individual Parameter Indicators: These are individual visual indicators of the worst condition number for each process parameter. The user can click these indicators to launch the detail dialog box where they can visually analyze the worst condition number for each channel. This dialog box also includes a Suggestion feature that when used, better centers all of the currently enabled channels to be in specification.


7)Final Indicator Symbol: This is a two state (Red-Green) indicator that displays the worst condition number out of the four process parameters. This indicator can also be displayed on the data graph for easy identification in  an manufacturing environment. To display click the Final Indicator Symbol to toggle the data graph. To restore the Individual Parameter Indicators select the symbol again or single-click anywhere within the data graph.


The Target 10-OK tab also indicates the go/no-go state by appearing in GREEN or RED. This is useful when the user is viewing the KPI tab so they can immediately know the Target 10-OK status of the displayed data run.


8)Show button: The user can select this button to display or hide various Target 10-OK features.


9)Target 10 Specification File Management: This area  includes Load and Save Target 10 buttons to load and save Target 10 specification files (*.T10). The Load button is used to load a saved Target 10 specification file which is displayed on the Data Graph. This typically is used to determine if different Target 10 specification may be a better match with the currently displayed data run. The Save button is used to save a Target 10 specification if any adjustments have been made, or creating a new one based off of an existing Target 10 specification.

Important Information

If a different Target 10 specification is saved with a data run, it does not affect the original Target 10 specification associated with the data run when using the OK button on the SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2, MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 or V-M.O.L.E.® Profilers.

10)Assembly Image: This is a thumbnail image of the assembly product associated with the currently displayed data run. To view the sensor locations, right-click over the image and select the Enlarge command. When in Engineer mode the user has the ability to set the sensor locations. When in Verify mode, the sensor locations can only be viewed.
11)OK command button: This button resets the Target 10-OK parameters back to the original results that are permanently saved in the currently selected data run (.XMG) file. If any modifications are done to the parameter specifications, this button informs the user by displaying (Modified) below the OK.

Important Information

Only the SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2, MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 and V-M.O.L.E.® Profilers are equipped with the OK button.
