Predict, Not Just Respond



From consumer devices to medical equipment, outsourcing and specialization have helped the electronics manufacturing sector increase innovation and quality. But these trends have also fragmented the supply chain, making supply chain management more challenging. High-volume, high-velocity retail activity hinges on your ability to optimize the electronics supply chain. What’s more, new e-commerce and “e-tailing” models and vendor-managed inventory plans at retail underscore the need for even closer partnerships with suppliers. How can you improve planning, rationalize capacity, and accommodate decreasing lead times to improve facility utilization? Adexa can show you the way.

Electronics Case Studies

A leading electronics manufacturer was looking to improve alignment of capacity and materials from wafer manufacturing and component assembly through Distribution in order to provide increased visibility and cost reduction in their supply chain.

A leading digital content storage provider desired to increase value within their Global Supply Chain Network by reducing the amount of late and short demand fulfillment while incurring the least cost possible.

Adexa enables all internal stakeholders to work from the same plan and provides more accurate capable-to-promise (CTP) dates to customers, up-to-date requirements for subcontractors and suppliers, at the same time identifies the most profitable production scenarios for Pulse.

A division of Lucent for making circuit boards for the industry, Adexa was selected to schedule production on a daily basis ensuring on-time delivery as well as highest usage of equipment. After implementation, the delivery performance was improved by 35%.

Maintaining control and visibility over 80 to 90 percent of the production costs (i.e. material component) when the company outsources product manufacturing to third parties is not an easy task. A dilemma for every company that has products manufactured externally. Together with Siemens Procurement & Logistics Services (SPLS) consultants and Adexa, Inc., Siemens Information & Communication Mobile (ICM) has developed and successfully implemented an innovative electronic solution to conquer the dilemma.
