How do you reduce the PCB assembly cost?

We are a automotive equipment company and also do PCBA by ourselves. But the production cost is moderately high based on the finance audit report. How can we do to save the cost?
  • For starters, simplify the PCB design.
  • Reduce material costofcomponent and board.
  • Outsource the work. This savescapital cost of machinery for assemblyand site fee.
  • Reduce overheads. If you outsource work, you may not need so much office space and other.

Why does flexible PCB need stiffeners?

When I browsed some comments online, I see someone recommends stiffeners to apply on flexible PCB. Very confused about that? Is it a formal design?

Can HASL finish be used for castellated pads?

I am designing a PCB that uses castellated edges to connect to the parent board. I would like to use hot air solder leveling finish to save on costs for prototyping, but I am concerned that the non-planar surfaces of the module may pose assembly issues. Is it common at all to use HASL for castellated boards, or do I need Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold to ensure successful assembly?
