If the manufacturer gets back to us and suggests any changes, we do take their suggestions into account always. But the most important thing is that any changes to our OEM products, including PCB design, should be recognized by us and recorded well in our database.
Why? Because this is our product and we must be the party who knows it best.
When we develop new products, we refer to one of BOM from the database. So the right database is very important for our further product development.
We should clearly state this when bringing in new suppliers. If they don’t follow this, we may consider quitting cooperation with them.
We do want some feedback about changing the PCB design in order to cost saving. For example, remove and change some expensive stuff and production methods. We reach win-win position and feel happy together.
