When was the last time you sought out a truly new supply chain idea or new way of trying to solve obsolescence? As the global electronic components market comes out of the shadow of shortages and unprecedented merger and acquisition activity, how is the landscape different? How many others in your organization understand the risks and pressures that come with making critical obsolescence decisions?
The solutions to these questions, and many more, have the potential to be solved through actively working to be more transparent in our relationships both inside our own organizations and within our extended partner networks.
So, when looking for improvements from our supply chains — particularly in challenging and continually changing aspects like obsolescence management — we often look to new solutions or push responsibility to partners…but the most neglected and simplest way to make effective change is to communicate.
This October 9 & 10 in Dallas, the annual Future of Obsolescence Management (FOM) event will hear different perspectives and promote open collaboration to Build the Transparent Supply Chain. The event begins with a half-day interactive workshop on the 9th that will dive into the internal and external challenges that impact your obsolescence management program. This is followed by a full-day, on the 10th, of guest speakers sharing their experience, challenges, best practices and more in a TED-talk style conference.
The guest speaker line-up includes seasoned industry leaders from ON Semiconductor Corporation, SMTC Corporation, Lockheed Martin, John Deere, KLM, Arrow Electronics and SiliconExpert. Attendees will learn how to overcome the communication barriers in your supply chain, what to do with your life(cycle), what the future of the DMSMS industry looks like, how the market looks today and in the future, and much more.
Join Converge and 150 of your peers this October 9 & 10 in Dallas, TX for this exclusive and free event and help write the Future of Obsolescence Management together.
