It used to be that the Flying Probe test system was used only to replace the classic ICT test systems, primarily for prototype series (NPI). Since several design revisions were usually required, cost-intensive fixture adjustments had to made for any change to the prototype.

Process engineers use dummy components and test components to improve SMT assembly processes. Dummies (also known as mechanical packages, test die or test vehicles) offer properties other than using "live" devices for a wide variety of process-related applications. However, not all dummies perform equally. One size does not fit all applications. Skill and understanding are required when selecting the correct dummy or test component for the job.

To improve circuit boards, components are placed on a PCB and experimented on until failures emerge. Thereafter the cause of failure is found and knowledge is gained of how to improve the process. The testing can be rather expensive however, and some components are too valuable to be wasted on experiments.
