Price or quality?

2017/4/24 11:52:19

When buying PCB online, we may face a selection dilemma between price and quality.After all, it is very hard to get a balance point between them.

Each buyer like cheap PCB,while every manufacturer need to make a profit. Thus, we will doubt how the manufacturers can successfully bring us cheap price.If they do,would it be the consequence of sacrificing PCB quality?Honestly,we don't want a inferior PCB board though the cost is low.

In some cases, we would rather spend more money on buying PCB of high quality. Of course, there is a precondition that the budget is enough or you are not sensitive about price. In other case, your budget is very limited but still looking for good quality. This is a bit embarrassing.

You may have similar experience before.Price and quality, Which one is your emphasis?

No company would state anything but top quality (as far as I know). It is a matter of trust. I have the impression that I have to trust some vendors or manufactures which can offer me good-quality productions, if I am the buyers.

I am thinking a question: is there any inevitable connections between price and quality?It is hard to answer. Actually,no one will inform buyers about the quality of what will be delivered — and to actually deliver what buyers promise.Maybe I am different from your views, I think the best possible quality is able to be delivered anyway.

Any PCB manufacturers or vendors need to make profit,otherwise they can not survive.The key is how they can balance the relationship between them. As a buyer or client,I think we also need to know that:

In any case questions about how quality is assured are always valid. But it all starts with the our understanding of price and quality interdependence. Too low prices may bring high quality risk.

W. Edwards Deming said  that price has no meaning without a measure of the quality being purchased. I agree with this point as you just can’t consider price in isolation from quality.And we know that low quality means a lot of rework and higher overall cost. Heavy price optimizations means great quality cutting and painful quality tradeoffs. The good way is ask yourself, if it’s just the quality you need,then you will be willing to pay for.

Quality should be more important than price.
