HERNDON, VAiNEMI is gearing up for development of its 2009 Roadmap and is looking for industry experts to contribute.
The North American kick-off meeting is Feb. 20-21 at H-P in Cupertino, CA and is open to anyone who wants to participate.
“At this meeting, we’ll be reviewing preliminary reports on the product emulator group chapters, which are already in development. These reports will be followed by breakout sessions, in which all of the technology working groups will hold their first meetings to identify key issues to be addressed in their respective technology areas. The TWGs will then report back to the group as a whole, giving everyone the chance to discuss the ‘big picture’ and coordinate on issues that affect all aspects of the roadmap,” iNEMI director of roadmapping, Chuck Richardson, says.
“This effort requires a good mix of OEMs, EMS providers and suppliers to produce a document that will be useful to industry,” he says. “We are also trying to ensure a global view of the industry and have efforts running in parallel in Europe and Asia.”

Eastern-US: China’s New Competitor?

Parity emerges among EMS Factories from Asia, Mexico and the US.

For the first time in years we see parity in the Eastern US among EMS factories from Asia, Mexico and the US. This EMS market condition will permit American OEMs (the EMS industry refers to OEMs as customers) to have more EMS pathways to choose from. Now more than ever, such EMS assignments will require deeper investigation relating to the OEMs’ evaluation of manufacturing strategies.

The Human Touch

For those who count on the electronics industry for big feats, it’s been a remarkable couple of years.
