This event is for electronics OEM professionals working in OEM companies.

This event is for OEMs evaluating EMS provider costs and quotes and wanting to better understand how EMS providers determine OEM pricing.

Electronics product cost is influenced by various drivers, related to a specific factory and to the combination of products it produces. Factory overhead and equipment utilization fluctuate and so do costs. Its easy for EMS providers to overestimate costs, especially when extra contingencies are added resulting in higher than expected quotes presented to OEMs for the cost of manufacture. (Read how manufacturers can drive costs out from current product portfolios)

Determining accurate or fair product costing for SMT, printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) and/or assembled electronic products, EMS workforce labor (direct and indirect), systems testing, etc...is easy when manufactured or assembled by well managed, cost efficient, productive and competent EMS providers in a specified geographic region of the world. But EMS is a business model filled with uncertainty. This event aims to bring a greater sense of understanding for electronics OEM professionals who attend. Ideally suited for OEMs concerned about cost as a contributing decision factor when selecting EMS provider partners.

OEM target audience: Electronic OEM individuals, managers and executives working in OEM hardware companies responsible for proposals, quotes, costing and cost management, vendor and supplier management, purchasing, planning, strategic sourcing, materials and supply chain management, manufacturing operations, finance, corporate strategy and related.
