Avoiding Line-Down and Production Stops At The Design Stage

Presented: March 3, 2022

Avoiding Line-Down and Production Stops At The Design Stage Nearly every Bill of Materials has one or more line items that are single-sourced: only one component from one manufacturer is allowed. Single-sourcing materials is the most common cause of unavailability, and therefore, delayed or halted production.

Join us as we discuss the importance of Designing for Availability: rules and strategies for design engineers to support continued manufacturing in times of ever-increasing supply chain delays.

You will learn:
  1. The importance of having multiple vendors for every critical material in your design
  2. Strategies for diversifying and reacting to changing market conditions
  3. Modular design approaches
  4. Software-designed features
  5. Single-sourcing approval processes
  6. Using digital platforms to inform sourcing decisions during design
