Electronics Manufacturing Basics

Created: April 2020


Product manufacturing is heavily involve during each design stages. In the prototype stage, manufacturing is focused on PCB design. Later stage involves factory assembly lines testing and quality checks.

Prototype Stage: Emphasis on PCB Design

Later Stages: Factory Assembly Lines, Testing, and Quality Checks

By integrating manufacturing considerations at each stage, from prototype to mass production, companies can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance product quality. As an electrical systems engineer understanding this multi-stage, interdisciplinary process will be crucial. The in the following subsections, we will dive deep into PCB manfuacturing, quality control, and typical factory floor layout.
