Seven tips to mitigate risk in the international supply chain management

Seven tips to mitigate risk in the international supply chain management

The pandemic has irrevocably changed the role of supply chain management (SCM) in manufacturing electronic devices. The coronavirus outbreak has exposed all weaknesses in maintaining production continuity and providing component availability.

Why sketching is an important part of the hardware design process?

Why sketching is an important part of the hardware design process?

Sketching ideas is one of the first steps that you have to take when designing a product. Of course, it doesn’t just need to be used in a professional design process; this approach is well worth using in the visual presentation and development of any idea. The advantage of sketching is that you don’t have to be a trained artist to create sketches. With them, design concepts can be presented and explained easily.

It’s all designing good hardware of a beacon to make the most of it

It’s all designing good hardware of a beacon to make the most of it

Beacons are one of the examples of how we have transferred the well-known Bluetooth technology from everyday use to the business environment. We could expand their application on a bigger, more usable scale if the location services Bluetooth were more accurate. As it happens, it is already viable (you can track objects down to centimeters), but it needs more sophisticated technology - the technology which takes its beginning in the first steps of designing beacons hardware.

Helping gives you wings — BE ABLE TO HELP

That was the first occasion when VECTOR BLUE HUB could take part in the BE ABLE TO HELP CSR project organized by the whole VECTOR Group company. Over 30 employees engaged in refurbishing the Educational Care Facility No. 3 in Gdynia – our hometown. That, however, was only one part of the whole-year project. What happened more?

How do you profit when your manufacturer sticks to a process?

How do you profit when your manufacturer sticks to a process?

Recently, we went through the subject of working along with the process in companies. It is very wise of an entrepreneur to set the work in procedures (we know that now), but is it wise from the client's perspective to track down paragraphs? Let us keep an eye on what information clients get when they know their services provider sticks to process stages.

Process in the electronics industry - three musts which make it agile

Process in the electronics industry - three musts which make it agile

What does it mean that an organization's tasks flow down in a well-thought-through process right to their completion? Is it still a hard-and-fast fossilized thing of the past - a management dodo? Or sort of a business prism which casts the full picture of where the organization goes? Then it is nothing like a fossil but a map. And, putting the first steps in the unknown business endeavor, you would incline to join rather the man with a map than the one without it... In the electronic devices industry, the process - the perfect map - takes three features which will make it not inflexible, but agile.

X-ray inspection – why it is important?

X-ray inspection – why it is important?

Compaction of the components constituting electronic devices advances owing to the demand for the comfort of life and work, and also for sparing time. Devices have to be smaller, faster, more accessible and friendlier in terms of user experience. To be sure they will keep working for years we need to look them through – literally. X-ray inspection of the BGA soldering or joints on PCBs finds the smallest defections whose diameter may take no more than one micrometer… The accuracy of its quality control is, thus, spectacular. Is spectacular in this case becoming a standard? And why X-raying electronics saves money?

Our mechanics keep the electronics safe and sound - case study

Our mechanics keep the electronics safe and sound - case study

You stepped into the last stages of your project and already designed signal generators, so you are making yourself ready to send terabytes of data to the end users. Or, let us step backward, you want to distribute your new cutting-edge optical fibers but… with few favorable odds that you are going to connect them with coaxial RF connectors. Indeed, excitement dwindles much when we find ourselves in a system of the legacy infrastructure – old and dusty domestic wires long forgotten. It occurs, however, that there is a way out of such a technological despair with one simple move – even if your project has already arrived on an advanced stage.

Why to produce electronics in Europe?

Why to produce electronics in Europe?

After a few years of European electronics manufacturing services (EMS) market stagnation there has come the time for the rebirth. The European EMS industry will have reached 32 billion euro by 2021 as the Reed Electronics Research's report says. ADAMCIT (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Medical, Control & Industrial and Telecom) sectors in this area will soon be getting bigger and bigger at a compound annual rate of 2.8% on average. Those promising numbers reveal the answers to the questions like: “Why to produce electronic devices and components in Europe?” And the fact that more companies follow those on the winning streak does not provide any answer.

Quality management in electronic devices industry

Quality management in electronic devices industry

Project in electronic devices industry, if successful, comes from what the client wants and what the market expects. Between them springs up quality – the bridge between a company and its clients. Quality planning is then answering the question how to deliver what is in demand. But why does it take so much to plan this very process, especially in manufacturing electronic devices, and when to call quality enough?

Why is Scrum Master a full-time role?

Why is Scrum Master a full-time role?

Working as a Scrum Master comes very close to conducting a symphonic orchestra– it only seems like light and frivolous brandishing the baton. In fact, these merry swings only veneer an arduous endeavor followed by tons of knowledge and multitasking – do not look away from the harp, keep an eye on the piano, what are the strings doing?! It is, thus, enough for one person to conduct the development team, but what happens before one sits on the Scrum Master’s chair?

The world is changing too fast to not be Scrum – the method explained

The world is changing too fast to not be Scrum – the method explained

All you need to know about Scrum is that you plan, do, revise, repeat... Simple, is it not? Three roles in the management and five steps in task tackling - repeat. Repeat until you deliver the ultimate value to your client. It is so concise that even the Scrum Guide itself takes roughly two pages of the offhand writing. And yet, that apparent step-by-step simplicity still brings on too many perplexities to leave it undiscussed. Where, thus, lie pains of Scrum implementation and how to achieve quick wins in it?

Product owner - role and why do we need one?

Product owner - role and why do we need one?

Agility of projects in great portion depends on planning, short proceedings and updating the status with a huge space for people’s initiative who are engaged in work. But how to harness this revolutionizing freedom to steer where in fact we want to go with our project? Is Product Owner’s role an answer for communicational struggles in agile management? Why is it essential to have such a person in the company ranks?

Agile management – is it worth a sprint?

Agile management – is it worth a sprint?

New technologies have changed our lives. They have. In many cases, they made them easier, more convenient and faster. Of all these things they will never forgive sluggishness, especially when you work in the connectivity industry. Once, a group of sharp minds converged and said enough to the inanity of corporate rusty administration machines hidden deep in companies’ corridors. That’s how agile was born – a mindset which assumes one thing: to act. And we tested some quick methods on how to do it.
