Strategic articles for sourcing managers, category managers, commodity managers

Electronic OEMs spend capital carefully to ensure an uninterrupted supply of materials and product pipeline supply chains and end markets. Deep EMS manufacturing supply chain understanding helps sourcing managers and category managers and commodity managers communicate with their teams and build close relationships with EMS contract manufacturing vendors and suppliers across manufacturing supply chains.

Depending on the cost and P&L of your OEM product specifications, programs, and your company, your COGS are critical in making or breaking the quarter and competing for growing market share. Your ability to bring product to your customers in a timely manner with the right quality, at the right price, with suitable contract manufacturing suppliers is a cornerstone to your survival.
