For contract manufacturing we make in-house the plastic parts, the rest of the components we outsource. On time supply and quality are key in outsourcing. We have over 60 subcontractors and to manage them we have set-up a constant monitoring system.
For every part we purchase we have a spec sheet and QC instructions, both spec. sheet and QC instructions, are email automatic, with the order of the part(s).
Every main supplier gets at least every 6 months an audit. Smaller subcontractors we send the specifications and QC instructions and we preform extra incoming QC. In the factory audits we concentrate on:
All the electronic components are directly bought by us, to make sure they are not fake and before we send them to the PCB-A factory for assembly we perform an AQL test and for some components a duration test.
