Optimizing Your Design Through Manufacturing Flow
On-demand Web Seminar
The mission of the design team is to create a product that perfectly meets the needs defined by the market. The design itself is however just the first of a series of processes that extend through to manufacturing and assembly, needed to introduce the product successfully into the market. There are many challenges throughout these processes, in terms of components, PCB fabrication and assembly data preparation which can greatly affect the result of the performance of the design as it will be measured by the success in the market in terms of quality, cost and on-time delivery.
During this webinar we explore the typical New Product Introduction (NPI) flow and highlight areas where manufacturing needs to perform product related activities due to existing practices. Design must take ownership of the product intent and allow manufacturing the flexibility on how they build the product. This webinar will then conclude with a Best Practice NPI flow that drives a more efficient NPI flow to bring new products to market.
What You Will Learn
- Essential PCB manufacturing areas that streamline design and how the product is built
- How steps performed in the design of the product can be leveraged to deliver a more reliable product during manufacture
- The relationship of the downstream NPI processes as they relate to the design team • The definition of the Best Practice NPI flow
