In this first of a series of webinars sponsored by Mentor, a Siemens Company, Eric discusses the process of automating material management with Zac Elliott and Sagi Reuven. They identify and explore four challenges EMS companies face in the digital transformation journey: delivering lot size of one; optimizing material usage, particularly in times of supply chain disruption; making data useful; and compliance issues when some regulations require records be kept for 15 years. These two experts explain with examples and case studies exactly how EMS companies can implement these powerful tools to detect counterfeit components, and much more.
