To make it simpler, R & D (research and development) is the lethal weapon that works behind a component’s success. Every electronic devices manufacturing company hire engineers and pay them a bag full of money to come up with new ideas. At this point, expecting them to work on basic electronic components like PCBs is something like asking a Microsoft Window’s engineer to install Windows in all systems besides performing his regular tasks, complete time wastage.
What one must check before hiring a company for electronics manufacturing services?
Ghost manufacturing: Before beholding such a big responsibly to any outsider demands gut and must not be done without legal bindings. Most of the big names want to sign up a company who can act like ghosts for them i.e. who can manufacture electronic equipments without embarking their brand names on it.
Quality of professionals: One must check, who within that unit is going to handle you project? Are they confirmedly trained or fresh on boats? In other words, if company is using cheap labour to generate heavy profits instead of expert professionals, they cannot deliver you the right quality component.
Though outsourcing these electronic manufacturing services can save millions (R & D costs, Manpower, Unit establishment etc.) and can get millions (profits and revenues), but if done with wrong hands, can be a disaster as well.
