    Cover Story
    Equipping the PCB Design and Supply Chain with 21st Century Data
    It’s an age-old story: A good design is undone at fabrication or assembly by a file transfer format that doesn’t accommodate key data. Yet, we still mechanically accept 30-year-old ways of communicating design intent to manufacturing. Change could finally be brewing, though, as a new industry consortium made up of OEMs, users and CAD/CAM providers drives for standardization across design, fabrication, assembly and test.
    by Keith Felton and Hemant Shah

    Recycling and Reuse
    Benefits of an EMS for the EMS
    The right Environmental Management System can help an electronics manufacturing services company monitor and comply with regulatory requirements, set and complete environmental objectives, and prevent pollution.

Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.
