Words of Advice: Where Do You Get Involved in the Design Process?


Reading time ( words)

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: Where in the process do you typically get involved with a design project? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. For me as a service bureau, it starts when the schematic is either complete or close enough to get the work started. For some long-term customers, I’m asked to join in on the planning.
  2. From concept to production.
  3. I usually get involved during the proposal phase and carry through to production.
  4. During planning of resources and the layout phase.
  5. I start at symbol and footprint creation, schematic and netlist generation.
