Quotation of electronic components subsets
Definitive cost price will be fixed thanks to quotation request to Electronic Manufacturing Services companies (EMS). However,, in most cases, it’s necessary to have a rough cost price at the beginning of the project for two reasons :
- be sure that the cost price is globally aligned to the targeted market price
- project budget estimation integrating prototypes manufacturing costs
We have then to create a Bill Of Material (BOM) and define cost of the different elements inside it.
This work is really simplified thanks to website eciaauthorized.com which offers a search engine querying tens of manufacturer database and giving back a summary of availability and prices of the requested component.
More than that, it’s also possible to give a list of components and receive an excel file integrating all the results.
