HOW TO MINIMIZE INCONSISTENCIES AND LATE DELIVERIES WITH PCB VENDORS
When purchasing small or large quantities of printed circuit boards from a vendor, it’s important to know that occasional delays may be inevitable. Inclement weather, late component deliveries, or extra time required to resolve board errors may subsequently affect your PCB shipment. Even so, persistently late deliveries and inconsistent products are not only frustrating but can cost your business a significant amount of money.
Among the avoidable factors contributing to late deliveries or inconsistencies, there are a few ways a business owner can minimize the frequency of such events.
Your PCB design quality and ability to provide all documents necessary to place the order play a critical role in both integrity of the finished printed circuit board and the timeliness of arrival. Then, consult with your vendor to resolve any remaining concerns. Should these strategies not minimize both implications, it may be time to find a new PCB vendor.
