Solution for OEM Material Shortages

The Challenge 

A manufacturer of professional grade test and measurement equipment used for wire and cable installation outsourced its printed circuit board (PCB) assembly.  The team was experiencing frequent material shortages on some items on their bill of materials (BoM) as well as excess inventory in their warehouse. This ultimately lower the product sales and group productivity. 


To tackle this issue, the manufacturer outsourced PCB assembly on a consignment basis and purchased components kits from CHAMP. Our team sourced and delivered all components to this customer’s contract manufacturer by leveraging CHAMP’s global supply chain and reach. To ensure a smooth start up, CHAMP provided bill of material scrubbing and other document control services. The customer was able to eliminate the double mark-up on components and greatly reduce expedites, broker buys and excess inventory liability.
