    Product Change Notification

    For electronic components, we often receive product change notification (PCN) about change in manufacturing location but no change in electrical characteristics, form, fit and functionality. For this change do we need to re-qualify a part as an end user?

    Hi,

    Your quality management system should answer this.
    Nobody in the forum can answer how this is handled in your company.

    Klaus
    Please don´t contact me via PM, because there is no time to respond to them. No friend requests. Thank you.

    Re: Product Change Notification

    As a rule you would requalify a major change and maybe just
    have a meeting to disposition a minor change (your technical
    review board should have the authority and skills set to make
    that call based on particulars).

    But I know of instances where, although the manufacturer
    says the masks and process are the same, the parts coming
    out of two different fab lines -are not-. They may meet the
    same datasheet, but there's a lot more to a part than its
    Table I electrical parameters.

    You have to own the decision process, and live with the
    decision you make.
