Inventing the automobile was life-changing. But the introduction of circuit boards changed the game. Integrating electronics into cars propelled the automotive industry forward at a fast pace. PCBs control everything from luxury features to performance: engine, wheels, antilock brake systems, transmission, steering, lighting, audio, digital displays… all powered by sensors and components on a printed circuit board. What is the major requirement for automotive PCBs? Reliability. They need to function for years under extreme conditions without fault.

MIS AUTOMOTIVE BUSINESS PROCESS
Customer satisfaction and retention are the cornerstones of running a successful business.
Our development, launch and volume production processes focus on managing customer inputs and requirements throughout the Product Life Cycle, such as:
- Proactive Material Planning to support pre-production builds and volume production
- Flexible Procurement of Long Lead Time Components
- Coordination of Engineering Changes
- Coordination of Material Obsolescence
- Coordination of End of Life Component Issues
- Coordination of Volume Production to Service Requirements
MIS Automotive’s product development process manages program activities and deliverables throughout the product life cycle. Continuous improvement Initiatives are always going on in the background in the spirit of improving cost performance, quality, and delivery. These include:
- Lessons learned and review of things gone right, things gone wrong at each phase gate review
- Value analysis/value engineering workshops (VA-VE)
- Synchronous manufacturing workshops and Lean Kaizen events
