Engineering Overview
Design
  • Whether its an idea, or a concept, you can talk to Pplus. Our people have many years of experience in the Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry and we can help turn customer’s concepts into products through our value added product realization proceses.

    Our supply chain comprises of experts in mechanical, electronic and software design, printed circuit board development, and we can introduce you to the right people, or Pplus can provide program management to help you through the various stages of design and development.

    We can also provide for prototyping services, new product introduction, material procurement and supply chain management, printed circuit board and higher level assembly, test development, in-circuit and functional testing, final system box build, fulfillment, service, and repair
Component Engineering
  • A big part of cost in electronic products arises from the types of components used. Lead times, stocks availability, customizations, and manufacturer’s minimum order quantities can quickly hike up the total cost of materials. As customers identify the Bill of Materials and manufacturer’s part numbers, we can propose alternative components that can bring down the total cost of product down over time.
PCB Layout
New Product Introduction (NPI)
  • We provide customers with early program life cycle support to meet your costing and lead time. A successful NPI requires integration of product design and the processes has to be aligned to your business and product strategy. With our set up, we provide experienced prototyping and product development services from NPI to volume manufacturing.
  • Our benefits include:
    • On site prototyping, low to medium volume manufacturing
    • On site engineering, manufacturing, testing and supply chain support
  • DFM, DFT and cost optimization
  • Component engineering. BOM Analysis
  • EMC/EMI consultation
  • Prototype PCB fabrication, assembly, testing and validation
  • Cable, enclosure design and fabrication
  • Reliability test and analysis
DFM
  • Design for Manufacturability (also sometimes known as Design for Manufacturing)- (DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture. The basic idea exists in almost all engineering disciplines, but of course the details differ widely depending on the manufacturing technology. This design practice not only focuses on the design aspect of a part but also on the producibility. In simple language it means relative ease to manufacture a product, part or assembly.

    The design stage is very important in product design. Most of the product lifecycle costs are committed at design stage. The product design is not just based on good design but it should be possible to produce by manufacturing as well. Often an otherwise good design is difficult or impossible to produce. Typically a design engineer will create a model or design and send it to manufacturing for review and invite feedback. This process is called as design review. If this process is not followed diligently, the product may fail at manufacturing stage.

    If these DFM guidelines are not followed, it will result in iterative design, loss of manufacturing time and overall resulting in longer time to market. Hence many organizations have adopted concept of Design for Manufacturing.

    Depending on various types of manufacturing processes there are set guidelines for DFM practices. These DFM guidelines help to precisely define various tolerances, rules and common manufacturing checks related to DFM.
DFT
  • Design for Test (aka "Design for Testability" or "DFT") is a name for design techniques that add certain testability features to a microelectronic hardware product design. The premise of the added features is that they make it easier to develop and apply manufacturing tests for the designed hardware. The purpose of manufacturing tests is to validate that the product hardware contains no defects that could, otherwise, adversely affect the product’s correct functioning.

    Tests are applied at several steps in the hardware manufacturing flow and, for certain products, may also be used for hardware maintenance in the customer’s environment. The tests generally are driven by test programs that execute in Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) or, in the case of system maintenance, inside the assembled system itself. In addition to finding and indicating the presence of defects (i.e., the test fails), tests may be able to log diagnostic information about the nature of the encountered test fails. The diagnostic information can be used to locate the source of the failure.
MPI
  • Manufacturing Process Instructions (aka “MPI”) is a quality control and production documentation file/book name including complete "how to" assembly instructions for the product as a guideline operating instruction at every level of production process.
