What is Build-to-print components? What does build to print mean?

It is hard to get information except by reading between the lines but this
powerpoint discussion linked here in html, with the link shown at the top, on page 9 and 10 seems to make it clear that it means "build to electronic specifications with the ability to update specifications during the production run." This fits with certain other references where warnings are issued about specifications that don't match well with the material and discussions of capability of accommodating changes. If every piece is being done "build-to-print" per this understanding printed circuit boards are not made in batches of 10 or 100 or 1000 and then filled, but as each one is made, the specifications at that moment are used - with changes in chips, locations, wiring layout, etc., being accommodated.
Other sites I looked at.

I don't think there is one website that will teach you all that, but why restrict yourself to one site when the whole web is at your disposal? Back in my day we had to make do with whatever magazines and books we could get our hands on. I think you need to approach it from 2 directions. One is learning basic principles of electronics: resistors, capacitors, inductors, transistors, diodes, op-amps, etc. The best way to do that is to buy yourself a breadboard, some batteries, some wire, a few grab bags of cheap components, some transistors and chips (especially 555 timer and 741 op-amp), LEDs, a small speaker and a multimeter. If you can run to an oscilloscope that will be invaluable. Then find some simple circuits online, build and play! Try to understand what every component is doing in the circuits you build, don't just make them. Try modifying circuits or combining them to do more complex things. Then move on to building things on stripboard, maybe making your own printed circuits. The other approach is more top-down. Buy yourself a microprocessor development board. Arduinos are really popular and there is lots of sample code and hardware interfacing projects online. That will teach you about interfacing digital electronics to the real world. Having picked up the basics the absolute best way to learn more is to decide what you want to build then work out how to build it. Don't get too ambitious, I started work on a huge synthesiser in 1980 and I still haven't built it :-) Building your thing may involve using stuff you find online but the chances are you will have to design some parts yourself. That's when you really learn - when you have to because the thing you need doesn't exist.

Likely it means to build an appliance or building to a blueprint which includes diagrams, materials, dimensions, tolerances and may include special construction notes including specifications and applicable codes. Build-to-print components may be off the shelf parts used in the construction.
