Selecting the right sourcing strategy
Many semiconductor companies are not deploying the optimal strategy for their business because they use the wrong criteria to determine which sourcing strategy to adopt.
- They rely on the type of product a chip is destined for or the company’s business model to shape their decision.
- This can lead to a mismatch between the strategy and the needs of the business and compromise a company’s ability to control production costs.
- With a hybrid, flexible approach, a semiconductor company can effectively use both the Known Good Die and Wafer Buy strategies, switching from one to the other when business conditions require.
