Once a connector assessment has shown that the design
and materials are adequate for the intended application(s), measures need to put
in place to ensure continued product integrity for future procurements. This can
be a formal contract requiring notification of changes in design or materials
between procurements. It may refer only to changes that are significant to the
intended application, and probably include mounting methods, increase in weight
or space allocation, relaxation of dimensional tolerances, changes in insert
material, contact composition, plating methodology, and physical configuration
changes, that may require a change in installation procedures. Other significant
attributes of specific connector types are covered under the technology portion
of this document.
