Beyond Economical Repair – This is when a device is deemed more expensive to repair than the value once repair has been completed. Common reasons for BER include high costs of replacement parts, high labor costs and risk of fallout during repair. SmartGrade™ provides a range of solutions for securing value for your company’s BER stock.
Bill of Materials – This is a list of the specific components that a given device or part consists of. A BOM is instrumental to ensure the correct material is used during manufacturing and assembly.
Corrective Actions Team – The SmartGrade Pro™ Corrective Actions Team works with both our clients and manufacturers to find the root cause of quality control related failures and implement successful corrections to prevent issues from reoccurring.
International Mobile Equipment Identity – This is a unique 15-17-digit code that is assigned to every mobile device. IMEIs are becoming increasingly more important to original manufacturers to confirm the legitimacy of a part request for repair. IMEIs are also used when confirming a device’s authenticity for trade purposes.
Liquid Crystal Module – The LCM consists of the LCD panel as well as the flex cable, backlight, frame and outer glass. For most purposes you can use LCM interchangeably with “Screen” or “Display”.
Original Equipment Manufacturer – Quite possibly the most mis-used word in the industry, OEM refers to products which are manufactured from an original company and then sold through another company’s name/brand.
While this abbreviation can be attributed to original, new products it is often used to describe “98% Original” (We are still trying to find out what this means!) used, refurbished, aftermarket and complete counterfeit products.
While in some cases, we might use the term OEM (in which case we are referring to Original, new), SmartGrade Pro™ prefers to specify the exact condition (ie. Original, new; Original, refurbished; Original, pulled from production; etc.).
Organic Light-Emitting Diodes. Typically most smart phone displays are either OLED or TFT. OLED displays essentially are able to create their own light, instead of requiring a backlight. This allows for pixel by pixel light control providing better contrast and wider viewing angles. Most newer devices use a form of OLED display.
Return Merchandise Authorization – This is the process to return your defective products to us. We take advantage of the RMA process to not only ensure that you quickly receive a credit or refund, but also better understand the issue you experienced and implement internal corrections to improve our products.
Supplier Corrective Actions Report – When we receive a new issue or a defect rate for a specific issue outside of our typical defect rate for a given part, we work with our supplier/ manufacturer to outline a corrective actions process through a formal SCAR process.
Serial Number / Manufacturer Serial number – This is a unique serial number generated by the manufacture. This is typically used to identify a specific model and region of a device as well as to determine a device’s warranty.
Thin-Film-Transistor – For smartphone displays, which usually do not use IPS technology, TFT can typically be used interchangeably with LCD to describe a screen type that uses a backlight to light pixels on a display. TFT structures can include G+G (Glass+Glass), G+F (Glass+Film), OGS (On-Glass-Solution), OnCell, InCell and more.
