With the rise of the global hardware innovation tide and the upgrading and transformation of the national economy, hardware innovation entrepreneurs are springing up like mushrooms. But the vast majority of these teams face the pressure and difficulties of various resources, such as funds, personnel, technology, and so on. Among these difficulties, the sample production problem is one of the most headache problems for developers, which can not be bypassed and must be solved, otherwise, the development will be impossible.
In the production process of quick turn PCB prototype assembly, have you also encountered the following difficulties?
1、 Lead time management of key devices
A hardware product requires dozens of components or hundreds of components, involving many suppliers. No matter how much demand is, even one less component will lead to the failure of sample production. Moreover, the procurement cycle of each particle is also different. Therefore, it is very important to do a good job in material lead time management, to solve the problems caused by the lead time of components.
The mainstream devices are easy to buy in the current market. There are many channels to obtain mainstream device information, such as IDEASPCB electronic network or Huaqiang Xincheng, etc., which can be understood more quickly than comprehensively;
A kind of identification and management of key components in the development process, designers must identify which are the key components, because these are mainly chip devices, and the substitutability is very poor; according to experience, the procurement of these materials will become the bottleneck, and the lead of these materials will become the bottleneck Time management is particularly important. Developers must consider the procurement cycle of key components when formulating the development schedule;
A kind of looking for large component platform cooperation. A large platform has the advantages of sufficient supply, wide channels, and good price. For the development stage or small batch production stage, it is the best choice to find a large platform for cooperation when the purchase volume is small.
The processing capability of suppliers is directly related to the quality of samples. For this consideration, please refer to the items in the table below:
2、 Good cooperation, pay attention to quality and service
Quick turn PCB prototype assembly is based on quality and speed, and good communication with electronic manufacturers is the catalyst. If the communication is smooth and the two sides cooperate well, the production efficiency can be greatly improved.
3、 Fast delivery
It usually takes 5-15 days for the design scheme to be sent back to the PCBA sample. If the control is not good, the time may be extended to one month. If there is a time delay caused by human factors, it will have a great negative impact on the project schedule.
If the preparatory work is done well in the early stage, and then the appropriate suppliers are selected, the problems such as “less quantity, no order”, “no guarantee of quality” and “slow speed” can be solved easily. Quick turn PCB prototype assembly is based on quality and speed, and good communication with electronic manufacturers is the catalyst. When the electronic product company has such a concept, it can gradually form a stable cooperative relationship and good design habits and maximize the smooth progress of the project.
