Strategic Purchasing

Electronic modules in the high-end sector are becoming increasingly complex.The requirements and functionalities of the product are becoming more and more numerous on the part of the manufacturers. Modern electronics today consist of several thousands of individual parts. In a globalized world, there are between 5 and 20 suppliers for each of these individual parts, depending on the category. The greatest added value in the production of electronics lies in the bill of material (BOM). The BOM defines approx. 70 % of all costs incurred by modern electronics.
