In an earlier paper, we established the importance of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) in today’s PCB manufacturing environment. PCBs designed using those techniques typically experience reduced failure rates, cost less to manufacture, and minimize waste during production.

While DFM certainly represents a powerful tool for PCB manufacturers, it is one component of a broader Lean Manufacturing (Lean) philosophy focused on eliminating any production component that does not deliver value to the customer.

We will explore the impact of Lean on the PCB industry, including how it may provide competitive advantage to those organizations making Lean a key part of their culture.
