Shortages, Allocation, Excess, Recession; Oh My

Vernon Densler [Sourceability North America LLC]

Wednesday, June 28th - 1:00 pm



We are at an unprecedented time in history where we are in a shortage situation, an allocation market, an excess market, and there is a looming recession on the horizon. Electronic components can be in any of these situations at any given time and even the same part families can be in different situations at the same time. Each of these situations brings its own impact on the supply chain and therefore different impacts on Counterfeit Risk and Countermeasures. In this session we will examine the reasons that the market is in multiple situations, what that means for the supply chain in each situation, and how that impacts Counterfeit. This is critical because we can’t have a blanket approach to all of our Part Management in the current environment.
