Hi all, I’m a product designer who knows very little about PCB’s but often need them in the projects I work on. I’ve had a few issues recently where an engineer developed an SMD circuit board for me which didn’t work as expected. The engineer then went ‘AWOL’ leaving me somewhat in the lurch. As most engineers accessible to me are ‘freelance’ I’m very reliant on one person and in this instance was let down badly. So the question is, if I want to succeed longer term I need a way to mitigate risk placed on one engineer. My question is how do I do this? One idea is to hire someone very high level to ‘check’ work as it progresses and advise me. A ‘second pair of eyes’. So perhaps I can only hire engineers who work with a particular type of design software which I can get to understand as well as having a ‘second pair of eyes’ who uses the same software. I don’t know and would really appreciate any ideas or suggestions from anyone out there with thoughts on this. Many thanks !
