Semiconductors are a useful material in the electronic business industry with their main purpose being the manufacturing of ICs or Integrated Circuits. The semiconductor supply chains involve a lot of procedures that are required for a functional and efficient semiconductor.
A semiconductor supply chain goes through a lot of stages for a functional system chain. It is started from the system companies, then it travels through EMS, IC Design, IC Manufacturing, IC Assembly Test, end consumers and then circles back around to the system companies again.
There four principles for supply chain management that any business student would know. They are; code compliance, risk assessment, audit participation, and continuous improvement. Other than that semiconductor supply chains need to make the supply chain sustainable using different techniques and many factors coming into play such as the economy and social practices.
Take a look at the following information for more about semiconductor supply chains.
