Get proactive communication and a supply chain partner that you can count on.
Traditional supply chain models employed by many EMS providers focus on commodity-based vertical integration and procurement, creating siloed teams and information.
These traditional supply chains may drive component costs down, but OEMs sacrifice agility and time-to-market. Or they provide the necessary flexibility, but at the expense of an OEM’s cash flow, inventory turns or cost of goods sold.
Once a supply chain has been designed and the investment made, it’s extremely difficult and often cost-prohibitive to make impactful changes.
Perhaps worst of all, OEMs often find themselves managing their supply chains even after they’ve outsourced their manufacturing.
