For the first time the standard recognizes that more than one party may be involved between concept and delivery of an assembly.
IEC61439 identifies the original manufacturer as the one responsible for the basic design and its verification and possibly, the supply of a kit of parts. It then designates the manufacturer who completes the assembly and conducts the routine tests as the assembly manufacturer.
The original and assembly manufacturer can be the same, or, a transition may take place somewhere between concept and delivery, for some or all of the assembly. In any event, all parts of the assemblies must be design and routine verified by a manufacturer.
Refer to the attached document for details on the roles and responsibilities of OEM and Assembly manufacturer.
