Minding the Business of Contract Testing
Test strategy, business decisions and a cost/benefit analysis are vital to outsourced contract testing for electronics and other products.
Lower cost, higher quality and reliability are longstanding tenets in the manufacturing and assembly world of medical products. In the business of outsourcing contract testing of electronic products, these tenets are especially true and involve a number of variables, ranging from the types and quality of test gear used to the smallest test jig or fixture necessary to conduct proper testing. Those variables must align properly to a medical product’s required reliability standards. By doing so, both the OEM and its electronic manufacturing service (EMS) provider can achieve the most effective use of the outsourced electronic test dollar.
