High-Tech and Electronics Industry

In the High-Tech and Electronics (HT&E) industry today, it's not enough to be fast. You have to be first. That means not only designing innovative products on a continuous basis, but also getting them out to market quickly enough to reap maximum profit from first-to-market advantage. To add to the challenge, the industry's rapid technology advancement creates shorter product lifecycles, mandating closer attention to cost-cutting by reducing exposure to obsolete parts than ever before. Lean manufacturing is essential. So is having the flexibility and agility to take advantage of opportunities presented by global outsourcing, especially in light of the huge capital investments required for manufacturing.
