Charlie Barnhart & Associates LLC (CBA), a leading provider of hard data about the cost drivers and risks of global electronics manufacturing, announces that its managing principal, Eric Miscoll, will present at the upcoming PCB West Conference on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Eric’s presentation will highlight some of the latest trends revealed in CBA’s research, focused on the engagement between electronics manufacturing services (EMS) providers and their OEM customers.
“The EMS industry has entered a phase of rebalancing, both from a business model standpoint and geographically,” explained Miscoll. “The regionalization trend is gaining considerable traction, and Tier 1 companies are experiencing changes that will impact the downstream industry. Our data has been pointing to these changes for several years, and we are now getting insights into how the EMS providers and OEMs should navigate these trends to their mutual advantage.”
The PCB West presentation, entitled “The Changing Environment in Electronics Manufacturing,” will offer data-based insights from CBA’s Outsourcing Navigator Series research set as well as an interactive Q&A session.
Mr. Miscoll invites those who are attending the event to contact him in advance at Eric@charliebarnhart.com to discuss current outsourcing initiatives and learn more about how CBA’s Outsourcing Navigator Council can provide value.
