EMA Webinar: How to Design with Supply Chain in Mind


Reading time ( words)

BOM denied: Redesign required. These are four words any engineering team dreads. You spent countless hours designing, crafting, and testing your product to perfection only to have everything put in jeopardy due to component sourcing issues.

Obsolete parts, RoHS / REACH compliance issues, inadequate stock—almost every engineer has been bitten by one of these issues at some point. What's worse is these issues often result in some sort of late-stage redesign. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.

On March 14 at 2 pm Eastern Time, join EMA Design Automation and SiliconExpert for a free webinar that focuses on the common causes of BOM rejection and how to prevent these issues in the future.

What attendees will learn:

  • Common reasons for your design and BOM to be rejected
  • The impact of these issues (on engineering and the overall chance of your products success)
  • How to avoid spec’ing in unorderable / obsolete / non-compliant parts at the design stage
  • How to generate supply chain ready ‘Zero-Touch’ BOMs as an inherent part of your design process

What Happens When You Assume?

07/05/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
What is design with manufacturing and what does true DWM look like in operation? In this interview, I-Connect007 columnist Dana Korf explains what it will take to achieve total communication among all the stakeholders in the PCB development cycle. He also stresses the need for everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing to stop making assumptions, even at the risk of being labeled as “that guy” who asks too many questions.

Master the Art of Communication With Manufacturers

06/30/2022 | Kyle Burk, KBJ Engineering
As mentioned in the May issue of Design007 Magazine, design is performed, at times, in a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Whenever circumstances allow, design should be performed by communicating with all stakeholders throughout the design process, hence the emphasis on the word with in DWM. Communication can occur through personal correspondence such as email and voice conversations or through more formal design meetings—in person or through videoconferencing. No matter which means of communication you prefer, it’s important to communicate early and often with stakeholders involved in the downstream processes as you bring your project to realization.

Altimade Puts Designers and Manufacturers Together

06/24/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Despite all of the talk about the need for communication between designers and manufacturers, many PCB designers still do not talk with their manufacturers for a variety of reasons. Altium and MacroFab aim to change this dynamic. In this interview, Ted Pawela, chief ecosystem officer of Altium and head of Altium’s Nexar Business Unit, and MacroFab CEO Misha Govshteyn, discuss the new Altimade manufacturing service that Altium is introducing in partnership with MacroFab. Ted and Misha provide an overview of the Altimade process, how it links designers to fabricators, assembly providers, and component distributors, and they explain how it could pave the way for true design with manufacturing, or DWM.
