Cost Management Strategies and Approved Components List for Electronic Parts Management
Electronic parts management is becoming more complex in today’s fast-paced landscape. With increasing systems obsolescence and growing counterfeit products in the backdrop, the need for effective cost management and component verification strategies has never been more crucial for the electronics industry.
However, to ensure the successful implementation of these strategies, manufacturers should also have a robust resource of updated electronic parts data that will enable them to make procurement and manufacturing decisions and tasks efficiently.
In this LIVE Webcast, electronic parts management experts Vernon Densler (SiliconExpert) and Michael Pecht (CALCE) will provide crucial information on how electronics suppliers and manufacturers can better manage cost and ensure compliance with an Approved Component List (ACL). As experts, they will also offer helpful insights on the importance of having up-to-the-minute electronic components database.
