World-Class” Managed Cost Reduction Program
SBC has developed a comprehensive process that thoroughly and completely analyzes a customer’s overall Printed Circuit Board (PCB) requirements. This process leads to development of a detailed plan to compress cycle times, improve quality, reliability and manufacturability, and reduce costs. SBC utilizes its extensive vertical and horizontal integration experience to look at every aspect affecting key metrics of PCB performance.
The process starts with completion of a questionnaire allowing us to gain understanding of your needs, requirements, issues, and concerns. A defined step by step process is then followed and over time a detailed plan evolves that will optimize PCB products and processes to create “Quickest-Time-To-Market at a high quality, and “cost advantage” over competitors.
