Mitigating supplier risk is good business, helping to prevent shortages and take advantage of market fluctuations. Learn how you can take advantage of market trends instead of becoming a victim of them.
Counterfeits are on the rise, public scrutiny is intensifying, and known holes in the supply chain remain vulnerable to ambitious predators. It’s time to stay close to the pack. It may be time to run towards the leaders.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive recently hosted a discussion among a select group of electronics industry veterans with extensive professional experience on the frontlines of the battle against counterfeit and suspect electronic parts. The roundtable came together at the initiative of Mark Northrup, director of advanced technical operations with IEC Electronics Corp., a contract electronics manufacturer based in Newark, N.Y. Northrup has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, has been helping lead the charge against counterfeits within IEC, and has written and presented on the topic before industry audiences.
The issue of counterfeit and inferior parts has gained C-level visibility across industries as front page articles in the Wall Street Journal and cover stories in business magazines have raised public awareness of the dangers that counterfeits present.
Tools that enable a practice known as 'standards management' can reduce total cost of ownership, risk, and inefficiency when implementing a myriad of standards designed to thwart counterfen.
The fight is on to put a stop to counterfeit parts and SAE International has led a G-19 group of worldwide leaders to combat this growing concern. Are you aware of the new trio of anti-counterfeiting standards the G-19 has developed? Do you know what these standards, like DoD-adopted AS5553, mean to your role in the supply chain?
The electronics supply chain is still grappling with how to mitigate the dangers of counterfeits. However, many companies in the sector are already putting in place effective programmes aimed at reducing, if not eliminating, the counterfeit risk. This whitepaper briefly describes the scope of the problem and the government and industry reaction, and then offers a look at how one company, L-3 Communications, is approaching this thorny issue.
The past three years have been a stark reminder of the impact of downside and upside volatility on the supply chain. A V-shaped economic recovery has companies scrambling and in need of strategies to manage everything from market demand and price volatility to material shortages and counterfeit parts. Download this report to gain strategies for responding to these market pressures.
Counterfeit and inferior components are a real and present threat to the supply chain. This threat is not new, of course, but recent studies suggest that the threat is growing. For example, a recent survey by the Bureau of Industry and Security of the US Department of Commerce showed the incidence of counterfeits increasing steadily over the past three years. Recent mainstream media coverage has highlighted the risks to product performance, operations and regulatory compliance from inferior components and fakes in high-reliability markets like the military and medical devices.
In the electronics supply chain, up to 10 percent of technology products worldwide are counterfeit, equating to roughly $100 billion in global product sales. Counterfeits continue to be a pervasive and growing threat to the supply chain. In this report, Mark Snider with ERAI, Inc., addresses the need for a proactive, comprehensive strategy for mitigating the counterfeit risk.
