Having an optimized PCB design process allows companies to stay competitive in an already challenging, demanding, and fast-paced electronics market. Based on the data gathered from over 175 respondents as well as observations of Best-in-Class practices, there are five main areas of PCB design which can be optimized for overall improved performance.
Key findings include:
The electronics industry is rich with competition. Product differentiation through performance is key to being an industry leader.
Best-in-Class companies were found to consistently outperform their peers on product launch, cost, quality, and revenue targets.
The Best-in-Class implement a PCB design process that optimizes system design, design data management, collaboration, PCB virtual prototyping, and DFM.
Best-in-Class companies are more likely than their peers to implement technology tools that can span across the PCB development process.
