Michael, Very interesting pointers. It got me thinking about how the OEM-EMS provider relationship is not unidirectional. We know what the OEM should look for in selecting a contract manufacturer. I wonder if you could touch on what the EMS provider also might pull up as a check list when considering partnering with an OEM.

SPcifically it is very important to understand their technical capabilities about the regula manufacturing services. A good design engineering team associated with the manufacturing testing team will be a great help to resolve some smaller technical issues.
