What should I do if the PCBA processing price far exceeds the psychological price?



When we get a PCBA quotation, if there is a big gap with our psychological price, we can analyze it according to the following aspects.



1. The PCBA processing plant's quotation is too high

 

First of all, we can analyze whether the quotation of PCBA processing plants is too high. Generally, the quotations of PCBA processing plants are composed of material costs, processing fees, tooling and test fixture costs, and gross profit. If the price of any link is too high, it will lead to PCBA final The quotation is too high. We can calculate the cost of PCBA by ourselves and compare it with the price of the factory. There is a previous article "How Engineers Quickly Calculate PCBA Costs" to teach you how to calculate PCBA costs. If you need it, you can click on the title of the article to jump.

Another method is to find more PCBA processing factories to make quotations. Based on their quotations, you can roughly get an actual reference price.

2. The price of some materials is too high

 

If the PCBA processing plant’s price is reasonable, but there is still a gap with your psychological price, then it should be that the price of some materials in the BOM table is too high. For example, the price of ICs has generally skyrocketed this year, and ICs whose prices have risen hundreds of times also exist. So we need to find these overpriced materials and replace them so that the cost of PCBA can be reduced. Certain imported materials can also be replaced by domestic materials under the premise of ensuring their functions.

 

3. Whether it is PCBA small batch proofing stage

 

PCBA small-batch proofing stage has a small quantity and large material loss, so the price of PCBA small-batch proofing stage will be higher than that of mass production. If the psychological price is the price of mass production, the psychological price can be appropriately increased.

 

So when we get a PCBA processing quotation, which is far beyond the psychological price, we can start with the analysis from the materials, production quantity, processing plant, etc., and we will definitely get a reasonable quotation in the end.
