  • Achieving supply chain certainty in uncertain times

    In today’s unsettled market, it’s a good feeling to be able to walk out of your office and see the components required to build next week’s or next month’s production sitting there on the shelf. Yet the CFO might take a less positive view. Inventory ties up working capital that might be better employed elsewhere in the business. What if requirements change and orders get pushed back or even cancelled, are you stuck with the inventory? Yet if you see a sudden spike in demand you’ll run out of inventory anyway. Who monitors that inventory as it is used, and takes care that it is replenished?

  • Five steps for managing obsolescence - By Claire Stevenson, Quality Manager, Anglia Components

    In the light of the looming RoHS 3 deadline, it is extremely opportune to think about obsolescence. Although there is always a regular churn of parts being withdrawn because the demand dries up (or anticipated customer interest doesn’t materialise) sometimes there is a bigger picture. Directives like RoHS 3 result in what might be termed an obsolescence event: a whole slew of devices becoming obsolete at once. Regulatory issues aren’t the only cause for these events though – sometimes other industry changes lead to whole classes of device becoming unavailable. How can prudent purchasing teams avoid being caught out?
