The outbreak of COVID-19 and the instability of the global situation have caused great fluctuations in the electronics manufacturing industry. Many traditional SMT processing enterprises began to seek a way out. Have cast their eyes on the PCBA contractor material processing mode, but this transformation will face great challenges, is bound to face the following difficulties.
It is not easy to build a high-quality supply chain overnight. Many SMT factories lack strong component supplier support during the transformation, which makes the OEM model difficult.
Another aspect is to look for unfamiliar electronic components suppliers, often difficult to get technical, financial and payment days support. This is not something that can be set up quickly with money.
SMT processing and manufacturing, often only need to undertake the after-sales service of the welding level, however, after the transformation to PCBA processing, is bound to face the whole PCBA board technical diagnosis fault analysis and after-sales service, which requires a very professional team of electronic engineers to complete. The recruitment of these senior electronic engineers, in addition to the cost, but also need the cultural group to guide the charm to complete.
In order to do a good job in PCBA processing enterprises are bound to be equipped with IQC incoming inspection, IPQC inspection, OBA factory inspection. Related technical positions need to be equipped with more professionals, which makes the enterprise need to spend a huge amount of money on team construction, so as to ensure the customer’s product manufacturing reliability and quality delivery. The rising cost is bound to be urgent, need high quality PCBA processing orders to support.
Since PCBA board is composed of many electronic components, the quality accident of any one of the components will inevitably lead to the defective products of the whole batch, which will cause great pressure on the after-sale cost and payment collection of the enterprise, and the centralized outbreak may pull the enterprise into the vortex of bankruptcy.
SMT enterprises are faced with the pressure of constant price reduction from customers and scattered processing orders. However, we still need to take our time and start from the aspects of competitive differentiation, market differentiation, deep cultivation of internal manufacturing process and improvement of customer experience. It is not a one-knife switch to PCBA processing mode. The transformation of an enterprise is a long-term process, which cannot be completed overnight. It requires managers to have enough patience and strategic vision.
