What is Fast Turnaround
Fast turnaround is the ability to complete PCB assembly and fabrication projects quickly and efficiently. It optimizes the production process to minimize the time required for manufacturing and assembly, while still maintaining high-quality standards. This includes streamlining the design and manufacturing processes to reduce the time needed for custom adjustments and iterations.
Fast turnaround also encompasses effective coordination and communication between different facilities and business groups involved in the PCB production cycle. This ensures smooth logistics and minimizes delays caused by geographical distances or supply chain disruptions. Efficient component procurement and management are crucial aspects of Fast Turnaround, as shortages or obsolescence can significantly impact the turnaround time.
By designing PCBs that minimize the need for non-standard fabrication technology or additional assembly procedures, manufacturing time and costs can be reduced. Additionally, optimizing prototyping processes helps to minimize the number of iterations required to achieve the desired quality, further contributing to a faster turnaround time.
