Engineering Mixer Luncheon

Stay tuned for announcements about our next event!

We had a full house on September 28 for the Engineering Mixer luncheon with SPEA and Testforce. We learned about flying probe and functional test, and attendees got to see OCM's new Flying Probe Tester in operation (shown below).

Internal Part Numbers

When you are designing a new electronics product, a single best practice will dramatically increase the success of that product in manufacturing: assign internal part numbers! 

This simple but powerful habit provides all kinds of advantages to you, including:
  • Minimizes errors and delays in launching new products
  • Decreases time/work involved in obtaining quotes
  • Decreases project risk
  • Streamlines communication between design and manufacturing for faster delivery
  • Minimizes overstock of parts inventory
  • Speeds the processing of design revisions and change orders
I invite you to learn more - including how to create, assign, and use internal part numbers - by reading our latest DFM Tip on this topic.
