Consignment PCB Assembly
Consignment PCB Assembly means customers purchase all the materials and then consign them to Eashub. Eashub’s role is only focused on manufacturing-related responsibilities. The consignment business model has been welcomed by a few giant companies before. They don’t want to invest too much in manufacturing equipment or have a significantly dominant position in the industry. They don’t want exposure to their leading design too much. Sometimes contract manufacturers can’t get the components quickly or buy the parts with authorized price are other backgrounds. The benefit of the full consignment is saving the interaction time with contract manufacturers, which is significantly favorable during the NPI stage since the design is not fixed or mature; continuing design change is inevitable. And contract manufacturing can save capital pressure during material driving. But there is an assumption that can’t be ignored for the business model; the distance between customer and manufacturer should be close, better in the same city. Else additional logistic cycle time will offset it. Another challenge is double efforts on material handling, including but not only limited to material pick, pack, inbound, and outbound.
Partial Consignment PCB Assembly
Partial PCB assembly consignment is a supplement solution to full consignment. It’s a hybrid offer: Customers supply some of the parts used in the assembly that are mostly unique or with a special purpose, like some new parts to be verified, customer control parts, key components that need protection, customized components, etc. but the rest left to Eashub, Eashub’s service includes common material sourcing and PCB Assembly.
