Averting the Supply Chain Talent Crisis
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That wasn't the case a decade or two ago, when supply chain jobs didn't require much formal training. But today's immensely complex and evolving global supply chain requires a new and unique type of multitalented employee. In many cases, 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? And how do you integrate these unique workers into crucial decision-making roles within your organization to position your business for continued success?
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.
Is Outsourcing Dead?
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR The booming pace of outsourcing witnessed in the last decades appears to be slowing as manufacturers factor metrics like total cost of ownership into their outsourcing decisions. In cases, some are not only holding back on outsourcing and offshoring but are even pulling these back in-house.
Your Supply Chain—Static or Dynamic?
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR In an effort to bring more efficiency and effectiveness to the supply chain, building a core competency around analyzing various supply chain design scenarios is crucial. From Make vs. Buy decisions, to the location of a distribution center, to the impact of a postponement strategy—these are real business decisions that are driving the need for more frequent, fact-based analysis on SC design options. Configuring a SC design that merely chases lower labor cost manufacturing alternatives in regions far from demand is no longer the single recipe for success. In fact, best in class High-tech companies are now going further to understand their entire "Cost-to-Serve" model to better determine if a more local option e.g. near-shoring might provide a more sustainable supply chain model that provides better economic advantage.
Enabling Supply Chain Course Corrections Through Control Tower Capability
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR In today's outsource-dominated global electronics industry, much of the value in an OEM brand owner's operations is highly dependent on businesses outside of the company's four walls—and increasingly outside their home region. With the volatility, complexity and uncertainty of market demand and the global economy, more comprehensive supply chain risk management is quickly becoming a major competitive differentiator. The lack of supply chain multi-tier visibility undoubtedly prevents our enterprise-wide capability of making course corrections when there are challenges in supply or changes in demand. Our ability to mitigate risk depends on supply chain partners proactively sharing key supply chain related data to enable proactive sensing and responding. With the competitive pressure on the supply chain, there is very little room for error.
Reverse Logistics: Reclaiming Value in the High-Tech Supply Chain
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR Reverse logistics is actually a two-way street by which products can be repaired, returned, refurbished and redeployed. Leaders in the logistics field can provide a suite of services that help manufacturers manage these complicated transactions without taxing their own resources. In this Webinar, logistics and distribution experts from UPS and electronic products solutions company Jabil will discuss the array of services provided by reverse logistics; how the system supports the 3Rs—return, refurbish and redeploy—and how manufacturers can derive the most value for their products after they reach the end-customer.
The Holistic Approach to Anti-Counterfeiting
Sponsors: Rochester Electonics
VIEW ARCHIVED WEBINAR Counterfeit electronic components have a high failure rate and pose a serious threat to life and to national security. Because of the risk, government and industry organizations have spent a considerable amount of time and resources identifying and combatting this worldwide problem. Despite these efforts, counterfeit and substandard device activity continues to climb.
The industry needs to better understand what products counterfeiters are targeting, and the methods they are using to produce these substandard devices. Currently, approved counterfeit detection standards are all visual in nature. While these methods are extensive, they cannot guarantee the performance and long-term reliability of a product. Only product test programs from the original semiconductor manufacturer can determine authorized product conformity.
The bottom line is to mitigate counterfeit activity through a meticulous supply chain process that delivers complete component source and availability information. The webinar focuses on how this can be accomplished.
