Our range of
Design for Test
Design for Test (DFT) again, as DFM, if the board is designed for test, then this will facilitate a quicker more efficient comprehensive test, thus giving better coverage and hence increased reliability. Simple techniques as designing in test pads and nodal pads, aid the test process and fault finding capabilities.
Design for Manufacture
Design for Manufacture (DFM) provides advice on component selection, problems in procuring the component (allocation and single source supply), problems with processing the component are all given attention at the early design stage. If the problem can be designed out at the prototype stages this will impact significantly on the cost of manufacture, continuity of supply and product reliability.
Production readiness reviews and documentation
UK Circuits can provide production readiness reviews and documentation, providing project plans of timescales and milestones required to make a “first off” PCB. This can be as simple as a spread sheet or Microsoft project planning tool. A next level PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) can be provided to satisfy our most stringent automotive clients.
A single point of contact
UK Circuits will provide a single point of contact with all new product introductions providing support and a focal point for any issues either in the factory or supply chain.
