Changes in the electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last few decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in the supply chain but it is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through the whole life cycle of the parts. Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.

This symposium is a valuable resource for quality and reliability managers, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policymakers, contracts and legal management, security specialists, and government agencies. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future. The symposium is organized by SMTA in conjunction with the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the Manufacturing Centre, Coventry, United Kingdom.
