Change Order (ECO) management is an important part of product
development. In the market of electronic component suppliers, changes
are often made to the components supplied for production. It sometimes
also happens that certain errors or defects are noticeable only after
the device has been tested or prototyped. All this means that the design
and production documentation needs to be updated.
In such situations, the organizational efficiency of the electronics designer and manufacturer is extremely important. How quickly an engineering modification can be implemented in the product is exceedingly important for the overall project cost. With our over 30 years of experience in manufacturing electrical devices, we do extremely well in managing such incidents.
Sourcing alternative materials serves to optimise Bills of Materials (BOM). However, alternative materials very often mean that the product needs to be redesigned and the production process needs to be updated. Detailed monitoring of the market of component suppliers guarantees that we can adapt our supply chain to any change in market conditions and that our team of veteran experts will implement the engineering changes as soon as possible.
As an electronics design services company, it is essential for us to use the Design for Manufacturing and Assembly - DFMA - services before starting the entire manufacturing process. It gives the process its simplest form in components production as well as their mounting in the final device. Design for Manufacture - DFM - choosing the best sources and components regarding the economics of a project. Moreover, after the analysis, we minimize process cycles to lower the costs of components and the whole production time.
Designing for Assembly - DFA - simplifying product construction works for both assembling time reduction and project stability.
To face the volatility of product availability depending on market demand we use last-time buy management. This allows us to limit the cost of discontinuing surplus material items so that we minimize the stock management costs and optimise the use of our customer’s working capital.
The capability of electronics manufacturing is related to the availability of electronic components whose lifecycle is shorter than that of the product in which they are used. In order to minimise the risk involved, we can custom-record the lifecycle of critical components and be ready to suggest alternatives. We can also provide this service after serial production stops.
