||San Diego, CA — Pulse Electronics Corporation has made significant changes to its manufacturing strategy resulting in a reduction in product lead-time to 4-5 weeks. This represents a 50 percent reduction over typical industry lead-times of 8-10 weeks. A majority of Pulse's products are included in the program. The program was launched after a series of discussions with key customers indicated that shorter lead-times were critical to their business success, and that, in turn, reduced component lead-times was an area where Pulse could make a significant impact. Reduced lead-times shorten the order-to-cash cycle, reduce inventory in the supply chain, lessen dependence on forecasts, enable quicker reaction to real orders, and provide better return on assets. Also important, they increase Pulse's flexibility and responsiveness to customer needs.
Lead-times will be available on the Pulse website starting in the July quarter and updated periodically to assure all customers are aware of current estimates.
