Full Definition of Zadj

A means of comparing the potential for defects. Used to represent the probability of error, Zadj can also determine the extent of a defect as it repeats throughout a process. For example, if the margins on a book are printed too wide, the printing process will create hundreds of defects multiplied by the quantity printed. Despite this high number of recurring defects, represented by Zadj, there is only one opportunity for correction within the process.

Refers to the probability of a defect when defects are correlated. For example, when line widths are printed too wide the process can cause thousands of ‘bridging’ defects, so although the number of defects is extremely high, there is only one opportunity. Unless of course there are say 4 sensitive areas on the circuit so that a slight ‘under exposure’ condition would only cause say 4 sensitive areas to bridge, in which case Zadj would then have 4 opportunities.
