IES's team can provide a variety of design services that will speed your product to market, increase yield and reduce costs.
DFM (Design for Manufacturing)

Through our design for manufacturability process, we ensure that production is achieved at the lowest total cost and at the highest quality possible. When designing for manufacturability, we take into account all aspects important to the manufacturing process – including material, test, line layout, and speed and scheduling. All this is done to lower production costs, increase yield and ensure customer products reach the market on time and on budget.

DFA (Design for Assembly)

Our team will review the product design with ease of assembly in mind. If a product contains fewer parts and/or ease of assembly parts it will take less time to assemble, thereby reducing assembly costs.

DFT (Design for Test)

Our team will help you step through the entire process and find ways to increase yields while decreasing delays. From pre-design to post-installation, our test engineers and technicians work closely with customers to provide tailored test engineering solutions.

Printed Circuit Board physical design (layout)

Our printed circuit board layout services are performed under an ISO 9001 and AS9000 compliant quality management system.

Product Design and Development

If you require design assistance we can assist you with development and design of your product. Our turn-key approach can bring your product to market in a timely, controlled manner. At each step of the design process we can provide the deliverables that will move your project from prototype to production.

If you have an existing design, we can help you optimize it by:
  • Improve product durability and reliability: PCB substrate, configuration, assembly processes and coatings all have an impact on long term performance and reliability. Our engineers can suggest design modifications to improve the durability and quality of your product.


  • Modernize existing designs: Even long running, stable designs can benefit from a design evaluation. IES offers services such as BOM Review (Scrub) to review for newer alternate parts, Through-Hole to SMT Conversion to reduce manufacturing costs and Lead-Free Design and Assembly to protect your product from falling victim to both component obsolescence and market restrictions brought on by recent and pending environmental regulations.
