An electronic manufacturing service is a company that manufactures products on behalf of another firm. Most firms tend to outsource the manufacturing needs mostly because they lack the necessary skills to produce on their own. Due to the increased demand of this service by most firms, there are a lot of EMS companies that have been setup. Because of this, sometimes it becomes challenging in selecting the best firm to hire. You know you want the best and high quality electronic appliance but you don’t know how to go about it.
In this article I will look at some of the guidelines that will help you with this decision. First you need to consider how proficient the company is in implementing the product design that you want. You can check the previous work samples that the firm has handled in the past. When doing this, check for the quality thresholds and how well the workmanship was done on the electronic device. This will give you a clue on how efficient the company is. You should also check on the kind of equipment that the company uses. This is by extension the kind of technology that the firm adopts. In case you want the product in bulk, you need to look for a company that will offer that and in time. There should be no downtimes since this will have a negative effect.
The experience also counts. Consider how long the firm has been operating. The longe it is the better for you since this will mean that it has had enough time to perfect their skill and capability to produce quality products. Besides, such a firm most likely has employed qualified individuals to work there and this means more quality work. Every business is regulated by the law and an EMS is no different. The laws will affect the different levels in the manufacture.
A good final product is not good enough before it is tested. A good firm therefore will go ahead to test. For example if it is an electronic device the company may test for emission of electromagnetic waves and it’s functionality too. In doing this they need to be following IPC standards and compliant to RoHS too. Another critical element has to do with the quality guarantee that the company offers. There should be quality assurance mechanisms within the production process.
