Risk Management Tips for PCB Design and Manufacturing

Risk Management Tips for PCB Design and Manufacturing

Most engineers don't think about supply chain risk management in normal times. But in today's environment, when components may be scarce or impossible to obtain, engineers need to take parts availability into account from the outset of the design process.

Collaboration and planning can significantly improve your ability to respond to current supply chain challenges and increase your resilience. We discuss several engineering strategies in this white paper, including:

  • Using A/B/C builds to improve chances of production without delay
  • Incorporating dual footprint layouts into a design
  • Getting to manufacture more quickly with a signed PPV
  • What you need to know about risk variance
  • What you should consider when rolling back capabilities
