Dive deeper into Component Sourcing:
What is component sourcing?

Component sourcing is a critical phase in electronic manufacturing that involves identifying, procuring, and managing the electronic components required for product assembly. The strategic sourcing of components influences product cost, quality, and the overall efficiency of the manufacturing process.

Turnkey represents a comprehensive service approach, where the EMS provider takes complete responsibility for every aspect of the manufacturing process. This includes everything from procuring materials and assembling components to conducting tests, packaging, and finally delivering the finished product.

Partial Turnkey offers a more customized service package.  Here, the EMS provider handles specific portions of the manufacturing process as agreed upon with the client, tailoring their services to the client's specific needs and capabilities.

Consigned Turnkey PCB assembly solutions cater to clients who prefer to provide their own components for the assembly process.

Frequently Asked Questions

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, a company that designs and manufactures a product. CEM (Contract Electronics Manufacturer) is similar to EMS, providing manufacturing services to OEMs under contract. The term CEM is often used interchangeably with EMS, though EMS may offer a broader range of services, including design and after-sales support.

OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) refers to companies that design and own the product they produce, while EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) companies are contracted by OEMs to perform manufacturing, assembly, and sometimes design services for the OEM's products.

Procuring contract electronic manufacturing services involves researching potential EMS providers, evaluating their capabilities against your requirements, requesting and comparing quotes, and assessing their quality control, supply chain management, and delivery timelines.

An EMS company facilitates the supply chain by managing component procurement, production, assembly, and logistics. They optimize supply chain operations through inventory management, demand forecasting, and establishing efficient supplier networks to reduce costs and improve production efficiency.

EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) companies procure electronic components through strategic partnerships with suppliers, bulk purchasing to reduce costs, and utilizing supply chain management tools to forecast demand and ensure timely component delivery.

When sourcing components, consider component quality, supplier reliability, cost, availability, and lead times. Also, evaluate potential supply chain risks and the need for alternative components to prevent production delays.

PCB component sourcing refers to the process of finding and purchasing the electronic components needed for a printed circuit board (PCB) assembly. It includes identifying suppliers, verifying component quality, and ensuring timely delivery to meet production schedules.

Component procurement is the process of acquiring electronic components and parts necessary for manufacturing products. It involves selecting suppliers, negotiating prices, and managing inventory to meet production requirements.
