Design engineering is one of the most crucial aspects in the research and development of new products. During the process, the electronic hardware design of existing products will be analysed to pinpoint design flaws and areas for improvement. Doing so ensures that the new product design is functional, safe and compliant with best practices.
Before initiating the design engineering process, it is essential to select an experienced EMS partner like PCI to ensure that your project is on track to success. With our expertise in electronic hardware design, firmware development and mechanical engineering, we will work with you to turn your product ideas into reality in a sustainable manner.
Understanding the Importance of Design Engineering
The design engineering process is a critical step in creating a functional and manufacturable product. Having a well-executed design engineering process also comes with tangible benefits for your business, such as cost and time -effectiveness. Leveraging extensive DFX methodologies, potential issues are identified and rectified early on in the manufacturing process, saving a significant amount of time and resources required to address issues that emerge downstream.
At PCI, we kickstart the design process by focusing on design for manufacturability and assembly, which entails working with key stakeholders during the prototype phase to ensure that the final product design is optimised for manufacturing. We will also select electronic hardware design components based on functionality and aesthetic requirements. By designing for manufacturability and assembly, businesses can look forward to tangible benefits like preemptive troubleshooting, optimised product quality and reliability, a shorter development process and accelerated time-to-market.
Finally, upon approval and construction of the prototype, operational testing will be required to ensure that the product is functional and compliant with the standard operating environment (SOE).
