Validation and Manufacturing Services
Prior to production, PCH validates the performance specifications through rigorous reliability testing, and we manage all critical workflows to create efficient manufacturing lines.
To ensure a smooth transfer from product development to manufacturing, PCH conducts full Engineering Validation Testing (EVT), Design Validation Testing (DVT) and Production Validation Testing (PVT). At each phase of testing, we provide a risk-mitigation plan before moving forward.
Prototype units assembled with production intent manufacturing methods to prove out product reliability (drop, cycle life, etc.) and for evaluation of the production assembly line
Engineering Validation Test (EVT)
Prototype units assembled to evaluate final fit and cosmetic finishes, and submission for regulatory certification
Design Validation Test (DVT)
Salable finished goods assembled that meet the performance and reliability specifications when produced at scale
Production Validation Test (PVT)
We refine the manufacturing process to optimize for cost improvements, quality requirements, reliability, volume and scalability
Confirm Capacity, Cycle Time and Line Yield
Conduct necessary regulatory certifications
Regulatory and Compliance Management
Make final adjustments and implement necessary quality control checkpoints
PCH utilizes a pull system to manufacture products on demand. We provide real-time data to our customers allowing them to oversee their on-hand inventory as well as inventory in their channel. This gives our customers control over the amount of product produced and when best to reorder.
