Hailey,

That's a fair statement to make.

You simply should'nt go for Newly Fangled concepts because some Highly Paid Consultant tells you it will achieve great results.

Remember its you and your Company's Results on the Line here;Don't fall prey to foolish thoughtprocesses/Snake Oil.

Automation is good as far it goes, but i believe that these sorts of initiatives really need to be tied to strategic objectives within the organization. WHen you have these instances that organizatoins are doing stuff because they have to, you never get the best results.

Hailey,

You have to figure out what works best(& what does'nt) here.

Wherever possible just automate & Simplify the Whole Compliance Procedure.

If you look at most Compliance Procedures they have a lot of Overlapping Strands;makes so much sense to merge everything together by Product-Type.

@Tech4People, I think that many organizations find that the burden of compliance with RoHS2, Dodd Frank, etc. overwhelming. However, these are imporant issues that need to be monitoried and solved and we haven't found a better way.

 

Readers: what would you recommend as a way the industry could tackle these issues in a more streamlined way?

Hailey,

Don't you feel that a Good number of Certification today just adds more and more to the paper-work involved ?

Such a Huge amount of Paper-work with not much Concrete Gain.

What a waste!

@Eldredge, from history we know that every new technology and each new certification takes time to integrate into the system. I'm willing to bet it's usually ten to fifteen years.

@Hailey - It is true that hardware for harsh environments poses a greater challenge - mostly because of the potential consequences of system failure. There is no need to justify high reliability aicraft system requirements. It takes time for new technology to prove itself reliable ...and the more stringent the requirement, the longer it takes.

@Rich lead free is a big part of the conversation these days. We aren't there yet but i think we are moving in that direction. I believe the challenge still lies in harsh enviorments uses.

THe reality of the global electronics supply chain is that there's no such thing as "just in europe' any more. I hope that demands from these markets will translate into higher awareness overall.

Certainly, the elimination of lead from electronic devices has been one of the most widely felt changes. From a solderability and ease od use standpoint, lead based solders are hard to beat. Other choices require generally higher soldering and solder reflow temperatures, which placed more stress on other materials of construction used in electronic components and hardware. However, the industry has found solutions that provide a better overall balance of manufactuability and environmental issues.

Supply chain sustainability leads to clear benefits to the organization, not only from an environmental perspective, but also in terms of reduced costs and increased customer benefits. However, to reap these benefits, organizations need to make a concerted effort to disseminate the vision throughout the organization.
To really tap in to the value of sustainability efforts across the supply chain, organizations must adopt clear strategies that leverage ethical, economic, social, and environmental concerns.
By focusing on lostics, organizations can improve sustainability.
