I am not embarrassed to ask - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

What is a "book to bill ratio" .

I have been reading about how it is going up or down for decades, but I have never found anyone that knows what it is !

I believe it refers to the fact that most equipment manufacturers don't bill until after the equipment has shipped (30 day net). The book (entering orders into the books) to bill ratio looks at the how the sales are coming in vs. the orders going out the door. You would want that book to bill ratio to always be slightly greater than 1.0, I would think. A massive increase of book to bill would suggest that production capacity needs to be increased. A drastic decrease of book to bill indicates that your resume needs to be up to date. :lol:
