  • 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.

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?
