The Relationship Between Product Development Support and Smooth Outsourcing Transitions

Outsourcing manufacturing provides a number of benefits including reduction in inventories and capital requirements, the ability to leverage shared production resources, and the ability to consolidate supply chain management activities. However, one of the largest and often untapped benefits is the ability to align product development activities with manufacturing experts capable of optimizing products for production and test. The adage that a change that costs a dollar in the design phase, costs ten dollars in production and one hundred dollars in the field is true. Close alignment with an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider’s engineering and manufacturing teams can eliminate defect opportunities, improve material availability and cost, reduce test and inspection cost, improve robustness of units in the field and lower repair costs of units with extended warranties.

SigmaTron International offers its customers scalable product engineering support that can range from a complete product development effort to optimization of existing products. This whitepaper looks at the benefits that an EMS provider’s engineering resources can bring to four areas of the product commercialization process:

        •  Product design engineering
        •  DFX
        •  Product lifecycle management (PLM)
        •  New Product Introduction (NPI).
