PCB assemblyFor businesses of all sizes, complete PCB assembly has several significant advantages. After all the conveniences of outsourcing, a critical piece that keeps the product running smoothly is quite large. However, when it comes to start-ups and small businesses, the advantages that come with choosing a turnkey PCB supplier can have significant strategic implications for a business.
It will be worth it before considering some advantages. Defining what a complete PCB assembly actually means. In a nutshell, PCB assembly means that the PCB supplier is responsible for every aspect of the PCB project. That means sourcing parts, manufacturing and assembling. Here are some important advantages that small businesses can benefit from:
1. Save time
The clear advantage of working with a turnkey manufacturer to handle the entire PCB assembly is that it saves the client team valuable time to focus on other aspects of the business where their expertise lies. As a customer, you don't need to spend time and effort finding cost-effective quotes for individual components, going through the hassle of sourcing them, and then putting all those quotes together. It also works well from a cost perspective, as turnkey services are priced far more efficiently than bundled services.
2. Helps you spot problems in the first place
The main advantage of using turnkey PCB assembly at the prototype stage is also the early detection of any problems. In fact, once you share the netlist file with the turnkey manufacturer, he can point out errors (if any). These errors can then correct themselves during the design phase, rather than making expensive changes after you're ready to go through production, or worse, when you're already in production and need to make changes.
3. Better management
The advantage of complete PCB assembly is that you don't have to deal with multiple suppliers. Apart from saving time, this has many other advantages. What you also save is the potential for miscommunication when dealing with multiple vendors. With a turnkey supplier, you may only have one point of contact, which makes the process seamless. Because delivery schedules are critical, the slightest misunderstanding between suppliers can cause the entire schedule to go wrong and lead to costly consequences. With a turnkey supplier, you can rest assured that the entire responsibility for timely delivery rests with them.
4. Other services
Turnkey suppliers also often provide other services, including inventory and sales. Shipping and more. For small businesses and start-ups, the importance of these services cannot be underestimated as you don’t have to spend time, effort and manpower on these and you can keep costs in check, giving you a competitive advantage.
