Supply chain resilience

Supply chain disruptions are wreaking havoc throughout the electronics industry. Get ahead of the game. Create supply chain resilience at the point of electronic systems design using our recommended three-phased approach.

Why is there a need for supply chain resilience?

Supply chain electronics issues are a challenge, particularly when it comes to designing with available electronic components. Lifecycle Insights conducted a research study called the 2022 Electronics Design for Resilience (EDfR) Study. To dive deeper into their findings, download these two reports.

Three-phased approach to supply chain resilience

Once you understand the state of the electronics supply chain, it’s important to shift supply chain resilience to the point of design. This can be done through three key phases:


Empower your engineers and teams at point of design with real-time component sourcing knowledge.


Adapt quickly to supply chain electronics disruptions. Employ comprehensive intelligence to manage component data, adapt to supply chain volatility, and improve cost versus risk tradeoffs.


Enable engineering teams to proactively design with supply chain constraints at the start. Use integrated, closed-loop component management with built-in traceability.

Introduction to supply chain electronics pain

Hear from Stephen Chavez, a PCB Designer with over 30 years of experience, about the importance of supply chain resilience. He shares his recently experienced supply chain electronics issues and then dives deeper into our recommended approach to digitally transform the electronics design workflow. This better enables supply chain resilience at the point of electronic systems design.
