Avoiding Line-Down and Production Stops At The Design Stage

Mar 3, 202212:00pm CST1 hour
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:
• The importance of having multiple vendors for every critical material in your design
• Strategies for diversifying and reacting to changing market conditions
• Modular design approaches
• Software-designed features
• Single-sourcing approval processes
• Using digital platforms to inform sourcing decisions during design
