PROPOSAL – Electronics Manufacturing As a Service
Project id.3
Reference sectorICT
IP Protection LevelPatenting envisaged
Description of the innovation projectThere is a technological gap between the post design of electronic boards and their prototyping, due to two factors: - Manufacturers spend 3 weeks to estimate the cost of producing a PCBA. - Buyers do not have any tools to create interconnection between their specific needs and the production specialization and capabilities of a manufacturer. As a result, lead time and global production costs increase, resulting in loss of device competitiveness. The developed technology allows to complete, validate and optimize RFQ data by integrating the processes manually carried out and to increase the correlation between RFQ / Order and manufacturers.

Industrial applicationElectronic manufacturing services
Market users are SMEs, start-ups and electronic design houses. They operate in many industry areas: automation, IoT, wearable tech, RFID, telecommunications, automotive, mechatronics, robotics, security, industrial machinery, home automation, nautical, etc The potential market is ~ € 5.526 billion.
Advantage factorThere is no tool able to control the technical specifications - especially the gerber files - and select the manufacturers based on the production capabilities For the optimization of the BOM (bill of material), Octopart meets only partially the needs of manufacturers and buyers: it doesn't offer alternative components, analyzes delivery times and generates footprints.
Commercial challengeThe adoption of technology has a positive impact not only on the 200 Italian manufacturing companies with Coindustrio collaborates but also on the various players in the electronics industry. Go-to-market is favored by user involvement in technology enhancement.
Publications and Customer ReferecesCoindustrio collaborates with the Department of Management and Engineering of the Politecnico di Milano, with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Engineering of the Politecnico di Bari and with the Department of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento (M2H MachineToHuman project for the manufacturing industry) for sharing data and research in Industry 4.0.
