EMS Manufacturing program management best practices

Whether you work in an electronics OEM or electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider, program management responsibilities in the EMS industry are different from project or program management in other industries. Recovery times to re-align an errant production schedule are often with a greater sense of urgency. Program managers must also understand the various functional groups in an EMS factory while understanding program management’s role in the sales process. Some responsibilities include cash flow management; understanding and managing inventory value, contractual service agreements including but not limited shipment commits; cancellation clauses and product liabilities plus product returns to name a few.
