DFSC (Design for Supply Chain) “Risk Control Management”

Managing components and suppliers is more critical than ever as obsolescence, counterfeit and non-compliance risks continue to grow and can be categorized within two typical realms:

Proactive versus Reactive​

Reactive approach to obsolescence management depends on taking action when a component event such as the release of a Product Discontinuance Notice (PDN) has already taken effort, informing the original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)of an impending engineering change in the component’s lifecycle. This approach is fraught with potential risk and late information becoming available to the OEM.​

Proactive approach mainly focus on predicting component obsolescence prior to the issuance of the PDN. OEMs using a proactive approach to obsolescence management specifically assign risk grades to each component and have appropriate measures in place to deal with the lifecycle change of a component in the future.

Component Obsolescence Management With Proactive Approaches

Risk Management Analysis Tools And Component Engineering Review

BOM Engineering Review

  • Problematic components identification, such as Obsolete, Single Source, Not Recommended for New Design, End-of-Life, and the years before to End-of-life information of the components.

Component Alternate Sourcing & BOM Cost Reduction

  • Alternates proposal for Obsolete, End-Of-life, Single Source
  • Optimize BoM and providing significant Cost Savings both for existing Product Design and New Product Development.

Obsolescence & Component Availability Management

  • Keeping monitoring Product Change Notification and Component life-cycle (component changes, Obsolescence, and End-of-life), providing the customers first-hand information about the changes affecting existing BOM and design.

Environmental Compliance

  • Ensure the product complies with the latest and updated environmental compliance directives, such as ROHS and REACH, as well as other applicable directives.

Trade/Export Compliance

  • Verify whether the products comply with Conflict Minerals Law (US) by checking each component listed in the BoM are free of Conflict Minerals, as required by the law.
