Thus, I dedicate this column to metrics—the method of measuring something. I mentioned the four levels of metrics in my June column "Producibility and Other Fig- ures of Merit." I also introduced the five stages of metrics in the second part of the column "Design for Manufacturing and Assembly, Part 2." A New Facility in India for PCB Fabricator ACI I-Connect007's Barry Matties met with Raj Dha- nani and Bryan Ricke of Advanced Circuitry Inter- national to discuss their growing footprint in In- dia, recent investments in their U.S. facility, and the future of the RF and antenna markets.

Lessons in Leadership From My Father When I was asked to contribute an article for this issue on leadership, I thought it was an opportune time since my Dad, Nagji Sutariya, had recently passed away. I had spent nearly every daylight hour with him since I started working with him at Saturn in 2001. Happy's Essential Skills: Recruiting and Interviewing Hopefully, your career has progressed to the point that you are empowered to recruit your own team or a key person for your team. There are always technical people looking for better jobs, but many times, the most talented are busy doing their work and not looking for a new op - portunity. PCB007 Highlights
