Procurement excellence: how digitization is reshaping PCB procurement

8 December 2023, America 10:30 am - 12:00 pm EST

How is digital transformation reshaping the landscape of sourcing and production in the PCB industry?

Sourcing Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) with the required quality and a competitive price level is crucial for sustaining business. However, it requires a high level of effort and focus on both supplier qualification and management. Luckily, in the realm of PCB procurement, digitization has emerged as a transformative force, revolutionizing traditional processes.

From design to sourcing components, digital tools have streamlined and accelerated the procurement journey. Advanced software facilitates design optimization, while digital platforms offer vast supplier networks, easing the sourcing of components globally. All this also equates to cost savings and an overall improvement in efficiency across your entire organization.

So, join Bosch and a select group of your industry peers as we explore your challenges in this space, real life case studies of those doing this well, and sharing industry best practices in this Meet the Boss virtual roundtable.
