Sometimes when you release an bulk order to the contract manufacturer, you may worry about the quality of PCBA. If I can receive good quality PCBA after balance payment ?
Some tips below to control the quality of PCBA before balance payment & shipment.
1) You can request the vendor provide some videos to check the quality and procedure, for assembly, for testing, for packing, etc. You can request a Skype meeting as well if you want.
2) You can let your asia project manager or the third party inspection company inspect on the PCBA before shipment, if necessary.
3) Sample testing before mass production. For example, you placed an order of 5,000pcs PCBA from the vendor, 50% deposit wired then the vendor start purchasing parts, assembly some samples (for example 50pcs) and send it to you for approval, then finish remaining assembling then 50% balance before shipment.
In fact, some problems may occur after you got the PCBA, even Apple or Samsung cannot declare that their defective rate is zero. Some problems occurred can be understood right, the most important is that if the supplier would like to find the reason and fix it.
