Supply chain resilience in PCB design

By Stephen Chavez

System design companies always want to deliver a successful product, so they rely heavily on their supply chains during product development. But over the last few years, supply chains have become very distributed, complex, and quite frankly, more unpredictable, resulting in many supply chain volatility and disruptions.

I’m your host, Steph Chavez. And here to join me, for the second time, is Matt Walsh, a Product Marketing Manager with Siemens EDA. Today, Matt will help us understand the importance of supply chain resilience in the product lifecycle and how Siemens’ Xpedition EDM product can help achieve it.

In this episode, you will learn about the importance of supply chain resilience in PCB design and the need for collaborative and cross-functional decision-making throughout the product lifecycle. You’ll also hear how Siemens acquisition of Supplyframe has allowed them to offer their customers a complete end-to-end supply chain resilient solution.

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • The importance of supply chain resilience for OEMs (02:02)
  • Deep market supply chain and components sourcing knowledge at the part level (3:52)
  • Part intelligence (7:57)
  • Need for supply chain resilience to span the complete product lifecycle (13:13)
  • Siemens Xpedition EDM product (14:51)
