In PCBA manufacturing, the working relationship between engineers and a CM can be transactional at best, or like navigating a storm of challenges at worst. A world where both are connected—from the DFM review, quoting, processing, sourcing and factory operations, through the delivery of finished PCBs—can be a reality.

This presentation focuses on bringing insight from manufacturers into every day of the design process. Find out how to create a smooth working relationship with your CM while maximizing the entire development process.
