Finding "Just Right" Solutions with PCB Assembly Services

Category: PCB AssemblyPublished on 2017 May, 18Author Telan

A growing trend in business today is the concept of "rightsizing." While some companies use this as a euphemism for downsizing, that is a misuse of the term. Rightsizing is to convert something to an appropriate or optimum size. In other words, it is the Goldilocks solution: not too big and not too small, but “just right.”  In PCB assembly, this refers both to the actual size of your design as well as the size of your production run. An experienced Maryland PCB assembly service can help you achieve rightsize in both these areas.

An experienced Maryland PCB assembly service can help you achieve rightsize in both these areas.


Rightsize Your Designs

When it comes to PCB design, choosing the right components is key. While larger components generally give higher safety and tolerance margins, consumers are demanding smaller and more tightly-integrated products. This means choosing components that can perform well without hindering the overall design.

A Maryland PCB assembly service that offers prototype services and value-added engineering can review your design for redundancy. They can tell you if components are unnecessary or repetitive, and offer solutions. They help you optimize your product, giving it the right balance of size, utility and longevity.

Be sure to choose a Maryland PCB assembly service that has an established, quality supply chain. This will ensure high quality components are being used in your product, not counterfeit ones.


Rightsize Your Orders

When bringing a new product to market, you need to consider both the state of the market and your goals for the product:

  • How many total units do you hope to sell?

  • Will you be offering different configurations? If so, how many?

  • How quickly could product demand shift? Is there likelihood of a demand spike?

This is where choosing an on-shore manufacturer gives you an advantage. With a local PCB assembly service, you have more freedom to explore these goals. Since domestic supply chains are shorter, they can be altered much faster if the market shifts unexpectedly. Choosing an offshore manufacturer locks you into commitments that often cannot be changed for months. If the market shifts in the meantime, you could be stuck under- or over-producing product with no options for changing course. A US-based PCB assembly service gives you the flexibility to rightsize your orders.

Additionally, Maryland PCB assembly services with modern, state-of-the-art facilities are better equipped to offer you a range of products from the same assembly line. A high-complexity order - one with several variations - needs a significantly more advanced facility than a design with minimal variations. Look for a PCB assembly service with the experience and equipment necessary to deliver the right product at the right time.
