Shift Left at Siemens Realize LIVE Americas With Design-to-Source Intelligence

By Amanda Gonzalez

Supplyframe’s Design-to-Source Intelligence solutions inject valuable intelligence and insights across the product lifecycle, from design and demand to supply and risk factors. This new breed of solutions democratizes information across engineering and sourcing teams, powering greater collaboration while eliminating costly redesign cycles. As a recent addition to the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace, Supplyframe is excited to join other Siemens partners at Realize LIVE this year in Las Vegas. 

Join us as we explore how Design-to-Source Intelligence (DSI) solutions enable digital threads across new product development and product lifecycle management. Accelerate processes and bring greater resilience from product design, all the way through to production. Attendees will also get a firsthand look at how DSI solutions are powering strategic sourcing strategies for leading global manufacturers and distributors today.

Why a “Shift Left” Mindset is Crucial Going Forward 

At Supplyframe, we believe that resilience begins at the point of design. By embracing new collaborative technologies and outside-in intelligence early and often, companies can “shift left” to get designs right the first time, accelerating product introductions and taking advantage of market opportunities along the way. In today’s electronics manufacturing landscape, where every new design creates complexity in the supply chain, organizations that don’t consider risk and cost early often get left behind.

As much as 80% of a product’s lifetime risk is decided during the design phase, according to Supplyframe data. 

Supplyframe’s Design-to-Source solutions include:

  • Supplyframe Commodity IQUnlock forward-looking decision support with up-to-date insights and accurate forecasts across all major electronics commodity groups. 
  • Supplyframe NPIInject intelligence and clarity into your new product introductions, discovering opportunities to mitigate risk and reduce costs before your BOM is finalized. 
  • Supplyframe DirectSource –  Eliminate blind spots in your supply chains and realize the benefits of real-time intelligence, forecasting, and risk assessment across the entire product lifecycle.
