Connector Design Reviews


Independent design reviews and/or stage gates are effective tools frequently used to ensure that programs meet their objectives during all phases of the product life cycle, from initial concept through full production and optimization. A design review is often conducted at the completion of the concept, development, introduction and growth phases. Design reviews should address not only the design of the product itself, but also all aspects of the program.


With today's time-to-market demands manufacturers (OEM/ODM) an/or contract manufacturers (CM) are often intimately familiar with the design and production of their end product, but may not be comfortable with the requirements, performance, and application of the electrical interconnections used in them.


APEX has extensive experience chairing and actively participating in rigorous design reviews for a wide range of industries and products. APEX believes in the benefits of a disciplined process.
