Accelerating electronics manufacturing with cost-efficient PCB assembly

Estimated Watching Time: 60 minutes


Discover how digitalization accelerates electronics manufacturing with cost-efficient PCB assembly

PCB assembly accounts for approximately 25% of the entire cost of manufacturing an electronic product, making this the second biggest factor after materials. Calculating PCB production and PCB assembly costs can be a headache as manufacturing environments vary significantly and costs can be swayed by many interdependent factors. Machine types and models, labor rates and large swings in overall performance are just a few of the things that can cause expected costs and real costs to diverge.

Streamlining PCB assembly cost calculations

Most manufacturers avoid digitalization in PCB production, they instead use highly manual Excel-based calculation sheets filled out by experts who must have an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the company’s manufacturing processes.  This ties up valuable engineering resources and keeps the task disconnected from the quoting team.

Overcoming challenges in PCB assembly quoting process

In this webinar you will see how to use digitalization tools to create a truly integrated PCB production cost calculation which is completely integrated with the material and project quoting tasks. You will also get an overview of how a mid-size EMS company facing similar challenges with limited resources improved their RFQ response time to increase their “win ratio”.
