LOS ALTOS, Calif. -- Q Point Technology, a leading provider of environmental compliance solutions, today announced that content in Green Data Exchange (GDX) now exceeds 1 million items. GDX users have access to the entire repository of shared parts and assemblies. Data includes RoHS, REACH, full substance disclosure, and supporting documentation, such as test reports and declarations of conformance. The growth in content increases the availability of compliance information and further reduces the cost of compliance.
GDX serves as the compliance technical data file, allowing product manufacturers to maintain current compliance data for all their products and assemblies. As an online exchange, suppliers can access the system at no cost, and provide declaration data that can be shared with the supply chain. Maintaining information is dramatically simplified, as suppliers can update information in one place, and subsequently all customers automatically have access to updated data. GDX reduces the supplier burden of managing numerous individual information requests, including repeat requests for compliance updates.
GDX addresses the growing challenge in the supply chain of obtaining and maintaining required regulatory compliance data. Visit www.qpointtech.com/products/gdx to learn more about GDX.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
