EMS component shortages: collaborate to survive

Is survival the ‘new normal’ for many, or can the EMS sector create better organisational structures that embrace these challenges? That’s the question posed in ElectronicsWeekly by John Dignan of Dynamic EMS.

Improving collaboration is one way we can build longer-term resilience into the supply chain, gaining advantages such as greater visibility and the flexibility to introduce alternative suppliers into the ‘supply web’, he says.

Clearer visibility of end-customer demand will allow component scheduling to capture ‘areas of concern’ that will encourage supply chain specialists to look at alternative material acquisition strategies.

Today, supply chains must have the adaptability to overcome continuous and rapid change.

To avoid electronics supply-chain disruptions, you may also wish to consult an expert in electronics component supply. With more than three decades of supply-chain expertise, Astute Electronics is ideally placed to work with you on your daily component requirements.
