- Many of today’s components are going through multiple supply chains before ever reaching the consumer – full traceability and maintaining compliance with international standards is a necessity.
- Supplier quality management is becoming more critical due to the use of the extended global supply chain. The better the quality effectiveness, the lower the warranty reserve the organization holds to offset unforeseen quality problems. The post-production service hours and material costs will also be reduced.
- Tighter controls are needed more than ever before, requiring specialist quality personnel and a strong partnership with the supplier. This requires a very robust traceability system to reduce time to resolution of any problems.
- Electronics distributors need to be able to introduce new products and processes quickly and efficiently to deal with economic volatility and variable demand causing fluctuations in production. This requires better communication between all departments, formalized processes which are tried and tested, and control measures in place to keep inventory aligned with demand.
- Manufacturers must consider the complete product lifecycle when making decisions. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to sustainability in the electronics manufacturing industry is e-waste – how to sustainably dispose of products and the impact of this on the environment once they’ve reached the end of their expected life cycle.
