Issues related to materials, have always been a major cost for SMT and assembly manufacturing, there are simply too many things that can go wrong. Challenges include, sudden, unexplained internal material shortages, a variety of production quality issues, costs of bloated stock, and now supplier trust issues with counterfeit materials. Any of these can become really serious, really quickly. With today’s Industry 4.0-driven need for small lot, high-mix production, the challenges simply escalate, stifling innovation and change.
