    Suggestions, Observations and Lessons Learned

    If the success of your designs depends on consistency of parts, materials, processes or test protocols, then change notification is important. In addition, there may be some changes more important to you (e.g., wafer diameter, bond wire material or molding compound composition) than others (e.g., plant location, product marking). If your business relationship with the supplier permits it, determine that minimum level of change important to you and seek a notification agreement from your supplier. In some cases, your customer may require such notifications or have the right to weigh in on them.
