Contrary to what many may believe, designing a printed circuit board is not a one-man job. Communication with many stakeholders is a critical part of the design process and an important responsibility of the EE/PCB Designer. With the role of electrical engineers quickly evolving, it is important to note successful PCB design is not done in a vacuum. A PCB design will only materialize successfully by a commitment from the EE to reach out and gather information from the PCB industry stakeholders listed below. Each stakeholder will be contributing their part to manufacturing the design and ensuring its overall success.
