Supply Chain Strategy

For Sustainable Production

Our Trusted Supply Chain

The electronics industry seems to be in a constant state of flux, oscillating between shortage and surplus across all component classes. NWES focuses on helping clients navigate the turbulent waters of the electronics supply chain as an integral part of the PCB design process. Supply chain management is built into our design process with a focus on ensuring clients can source the components they need and de-risk production for their most important products.

To help clients successfully manufacture prototypes and to ensure clients can scale to high volume, we leverage our experience across design competencies to optimize your BOM, identify at-risk electronic components, and identify viable distribution options. We also work with a distributor network that includes vetted overseas broker who can help supply parts for customer builds.

  • Identify at-risk value-creating components early
  • Source and procure components early
  • Leverage our vetted broker network
  • Cost-optimize your BOM for volume production

Simple Steps to Sustainability

Ensuring sustainable production and resilient supply chains has become the new focus for the electronics industry, spanning from chips to raw materials and completed assemblies. To see how we navigate turbulence in today's sourcing environment, take a look at our case study detailing our approach to sourcing for a major defense contractor. Simple changes to the typical just-in-time supply chain approach helped NWES secure parts on-budget and kept production on-schedule.
