APCT is pleased to offer our Connecticut area clients an exciting new service to help them succeed in the ever-expanding technology sector: PCB program management. This service is perfect for those times when a successful new PCB design is welcomed into the marketplace and large quantities are needed to fulfill demand. Our program management solution service is simple yet highly effective: by joining our technical expertise and commitment to customer service with the broad range technology support, fast lead times, and mass manufacturing capabilities of our capable off-shore partners, we’re able to deliver our clients a product that is much more cost effective than when manufactured domestically, yet still has the quality and reliability you know and trust from APCT. As we seamlessly manage all aspects of the overseas production for you, our managed PCB program gives you all the advantages of working with off-shore manufacturing facilities with none of the hassle and headaches.
Our Connecticut area clients will enjoy four major advantages of our PCB program management service:
- Ease of use
- Seamless recipe transfer
- Inventory management
- Risk mitigation
Our first advantage is our commitment to the ease of use for our clients.
True to our commitment to providing “best-in-class” customer service, providing all of our clients and long-term partners ease of use for this service is a primary goal. As we handle the entire program management process for you, all of your contacts throughout the entire offshore manufacturing process will remain the same: you’ll speak with the same sales rep, same internal APCT contact, and the same friendly engineering and technical support staff for all of your customer service needs. There’s no need for you to arrange overseas phone calls or speak with an unfamiliar representative: you’ll continue to enjoy the transparency, commitment to customer service, and clear communication you’ve always had from APCT throughout the process.
The second major advantage is the seamless recipe transfer.
At APCT, our core competency is our DFM expertise. We take the time to hone your design and confirm that the board is the most reliable, the most robust to manufacture and thus, the most cost effective. Once the design is confirmed, we’ll then create a fully functional prototype. Once this prototype has been tested, vetted, and approved by you, we’ll contact our offshore manufacturing partners to augment the manufacturing process. Using our integrated Valor Genesis System, you can rely on a completely accurate product recipe transfer to guarantee that the production build will match the approved prototype down to the letter.
Inventory management is the third major advantage we provide our client partners.
If your preference is for shipments to be provided in particular monthly quantities, we can set up specialized programs to meet those needs. APCT saves you the time and overhead cost associated with managing your offshore supply chain.
The final advantage of the APCT program management service is risk mitigation.
Throughout the process, the offshore printed circuit board manufacturing is closely monitored and rigorously quality-assured by the APCT team. You can rest easy in the knowledge that all of our global manufacturing partners in Northern China, Southern China, and Taiwan share our values of providing innovative technological solutions and incredibly fast cycle times. Our choice of partners who share our values, thorough oversight, and demanding QA process avoids many of the risks that can adversely affect offshore production, like the use of poor quality materials in the product.
Once the order is complete, all product will be first shipped to our domestic facilities for a thorough and rigorous review. When the boards pass this final test, they will be certified by us at APCT to meet our standards and your Connecticut business’s exact specifications.
As part of our commitment to our clients, in the unlikely event of supply-chain disruptions from our offshore partners, APCT will build the product itself domestically and ship the product as quickly as possible to you until our offshore supplier is back online. This example highlights the ultimate risk mitigation.
PCB Program management combines the immense cost-saving advantages with the APCT commitment to quality and client satisfaction to give your Connecticut business a powerful tool in mass PCB manufacturing. Together, APCT and our offshore partners can provide you with significant volume discounts without affecting product quality.
