Re: Digitization Tops the List
docdivakar   5/31/2016 1:28:54 PM

I would argue that digitization as an initiative in the electronics supply chain is far less than 37% (which appears to be the number for all of the companies surveyed; note also that electronics companies accounted for just about 10% of those survyed).

The survey results are not surprising for industries other than electronics manufacturing where supply chain automation may not be either a cost savings or time-to-market priority.
