In this episode, Françoise von Trapp talks with SEMI’s Bettina Weiss, and Bindiya Vakil, of Resilinc about how to navigate the complexities of the semiconductor supply chain.
The electronics industry continues to be in a state of flux. After two years of shortages, delays, and skyrocketing costs, the causes of supply chain disruptions keep changing rapidly. There is no single cause. Economic uncertainty, legislation, geopolitics, sustainability, and regionalization are all at play. Supply chain managers must be ready for multiple worst-case scenarios and be able to pivot quickly when disruption hits. Agility is the name of the game and companies must act quickly to changing needs.
The conversation focuses on why we’re still struggling with supply chain issues after 2 years, and how these disruptions are likely here to stay. The connection between supply chain issues and sustainability is also examined.
You’ll learn why traditional approaches are no longer the best way to go, and how you can set your company up for supply chain success. Lastly, you’ll learn about the SEMI Supply Chain Management Initiative, led by an Industry Advisory Council that now includes ASE, ASM, Dell, GlobalFoundries, Google, Infineon, Intel, KLA, Merck, Schneider Electric, and TSMC.
