Factors Impacting Manufacturing Testing of Audio Products

April 29, 2024
Explore cost-effective manufacturing test strategies for audio devices, balancing test costs against failure risks, and their impact on quality control and brand reputation.

When determining a manufacturing test strategy for an audio device, you must look at ways to balance costs – specifically the cost of test against the cost of failure. Although this seems simple in concept, it involves several variables for both “cost of test” and “cost of failure.” This application note will focus on specific manufacturing test strategies and objectives, and their associated costs.
