Dear all, I don't understand this sentence. Would you kindly rephrase it in a clearer way or as simple as possible?


Please rephrase the bold part.
Preconditioning components and boards prior to assembly is an effective way to prove that worst-case assembly conditions still produce reliable products (i.e. a sufficiently wide process window exists)

What does 'window' mean?

What is "for prime and rework"?


Minimum sample sizes for each condition are outlined in Table 2 for prime and rework.

What does "passive and active" mean here?


Prove each component (passive and active) meets electrical performance specifications either individually or by functionally testing the entire board.

That is manufacturing jargon. It means that the compnents and parts will work even if small erroors are made in the m,anufacturing process.

In this case, the word "window" refers to an opening, inside which success will occur. Often this is used as "window of opportunity". Deviations inside the window will still yield satisfactory results. On either side of the window, the process will fail.

I'd need more context or a jargon dictionary. It sounds as if it refers to intial action/assembly and second action/repair/reassembly.

I would guess that passive components are parts that don't move or directly participate in electronic function and active components move or are directly involved in the circuitry.

Thank you, Mike.

I guess I understand most of what you explained, but I need to scratch my head to think up the equivalent Chinese now. It's even harder. :cry: :wink:

I think that translating technical material is the hardest task imaginable.

The content fo general and vocational education has been brodanded and new places have been created in white-collar and service occupations.
Does 'new places' mean new opportunities?


The propotion of those preparing for a diploma beyong CAP(Certificate of Vocational Competence) has shown a steady increase, and now concerns one apprentice in four.
What does 'in four' mean?


TRAC graduates appeared to have an unemployment rate approximately half that of non-university-bound school leavers as a whole.
Are they only those students whose aim is not attending university?

New opportunities for work, yes. We can also say new positions, or new vacancies were created, or had opened up.


What does 'in four' mean?
'One apprentice in four' means a quarter of all apprentices (1/4).


Are they only those students whose aim is not attending university?

'...approximately half that of all school leavers not planning to go to (or heading for) university.


Does that help? :)

It is not clear whether subsidies to employment creat many net new jobs. Instead of increasing total employment, frims may simply subsidised ones, or hire subsidised workers whom they would have hired even in the absence of the subsidy(the dead-weight effect)

I don't get it.


Firm take-up is partly a function of how much information is made available to employers about the subsidy and how easy it is to claim.

Still didn't get it, need to rephrase it. And "it" in the last sentence means subsidy or frim take-up?


In general, the employment must be additional, ie. it would not have existed without public intervention, and labour costs are shared between public authority and the sponsor of the project.

What does 'additional' mean?

What does 'additional' mean?

additional - in a perfect world subsidised employment means additional workers get employed, the cost gets split between employer and government be it city, county ... The incentive of lower labor cost to the employer triggers the extra jobs.
I hire 50 men @ 100/week versus I hire 150 men - 50 @100/week and 50 @ 50/week (someone else will make up the diffrence). I can increase my production 100% while increasing my labor cost 50% and 100 additional workers receive regular wages.
There is always the danger that companies do not present their actual business plan when applying for subsidies and so hiring not actual additional labor but using the subsidy system to their advantage.

1. She is popular at school. (OK)

2. He chopped the ox and then make steak. (Not OK)
==> He chopped up the ox and then made steak.

3. I have experienced go to Canada. (Not OK)
==> I have been to Canada.

4. David is no matter, so don't worried him. (Not OK)
==> David is OK. You don't have to worry about him.
==> David doesn't matter. You don't have to worry about him.
==> David is of no concern to me, so there is no need for you to worry about him.

All the best, :D
