Engineering Query at King Kredie

Shenzhen Adventure Day 12

Inside the King Kredie Engineering Query room

On Day 9 I mentioned that we had submitted our boards for Engineering Queries, but I didn’t quite explain what those are.

When you’re working with a good manufacturer, they don’t just blindly produce what you tell them, they will go through and verify certain properties of the design to make sure it will come out as expected, or even tell you ways you can save costs that you may not have thought of. This is because:

  1. they want your future business
  2. they’re just good people
  3. they don’t make more money on the more expensive process

3 can happen because a different process may have no different labor cost, but just a material cost which they don’t mark up. This is an important point to keep in mind when working with various manufacturers – they will pass savings on to you if possible!
