Benefits of a Turnkey Manufacturing Partner for Your Government PCBA
Posted On December 27 2021
You've reached the point where it's time for the rubber to meet the road. Schematics have been drawn up, prototypes have been built and put through their paces, and production time has come. When the future of your business and your company's reputation are on the line, many look to a turnkey manufacturing partner to make sure their government project has exactly what it needs to go to market. That's when it's important to find a partner that offers as many advantages as possible to your project.
There are many benefits to turning your PCBA project over to a manufacturer that specializes in these applications, and it’s why so many companies choose to outsource.
Knowledge and Experience
While your company may have a laser-sharp focus on the final project, the PCBA is just one component of a larger piece. However, in many cases, they are the most critical, vulnerable components. So critical, that hiring a turnkey manufacturer that only produces PCBAs is imperative.
When seeking a PCBA manufacturing partner, it is also important to do your research. Teaming up with an unknown entity on a government PCBA project demands that whomever you select to complete the component be able to accommodate the myriad of needs while adhering to strict regulating standards.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions when vetting an ECM to handle your government project. It’s important you know about their experience and capabilities as well as any certifications they hold.
For instance, what are the flagship projects that they have worked on? What industries have they worked with in the past? What technologies are their team capable of using, and what do they already have in-house? What other services do they offer? Knowing what they are capable of before deciding to partner up can eliminate a lot of headaches later.
Prototyping is important to make sure your final PCBA is designed for efficiency, performance, and durability. Having a turnkey PCBA manufacturer to give your design another once-over is very beneficial. The experts may have suggestions for design changes that could optimize and streamline your design for better performance and reliability.
There’s no doubt you would quickly exhaust your company's resources trying to stay ahead of the game in all facets of what you do if you also had to focus on manufacturing PCBs in-house. One of the distinct advantages of outsourcing your PCBA manufacturing is that your ECM becomes an extension of your team. All of their talents, state-of-the-art equipment, and all of their capabilities become part of your company’s processes. They’ll take your ideas and intentions, combine them with their own experiences and expertise, and develop a superior product you would not be able to produce on your own. Outsourcing just means you’re giving your customers the best you can offer.
The top PCBA manufacturers know what they do inside and out, and can take a project from start to finish with one team all under one roof. It may save you a little money by contracting with several shops for different stages of the build, but you’re also putting a lot on the line if something falls through during the process. Having one team with one contact person in one shop from beginning to end can mean the difference between a successful product and one that produces more problems than it solves. The right ECM can predict issues and brainstorm solutions without needing direct input or approval since they already know your expectations and you trust their capabilities.
