Our supply chain staff is highly experienced in the electronics industry and monitors macro-level trends relating to lead times and availability of components by class, allowing us to mitigate issues ahead of our competition. For example, allocation issues relating to Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCC) in 2018 were pro-actively addressed and caused no supply chain disruptions.
Next, we focus on component authenticity, a risk that is heightened during periods like the aforementioned MLCC allocation. Pro-Active Engineering’s approach is as follows:
- Purchase from authorized distributors or
- Purchase from our highly vetted, limited selection of Independent Distributors who can provide traceability documentation or
- Assess the risk and contract to 3rd party testing as required for authenticity
Our approach to risk mitigation guarantees both early detections of market trends that can negatively affect your business and the authenticity of components that we purchase on your behalf to provide you a quality product.
