In supply chain management today, it is widely accepted that effective upstream processes drive efficiency further down the supply chain. By applying a product lifecycle management mentality as early as conceptual design, a product can be developed from the ground up to be truly supply-chain-efficient. Designing for Supply Chain Optimization is a process of education and component selection to ensure component availability, compliance, and cost efficiencies. This is no small task though. With rigorous financial requirements, hefty product design considerations - adding additional considerations of downstream decisions such as availability and compliance is sometimes lost for the sake of delivery deadlines. But, there are revolutionary tools to support this type of integrated process with minimal additional effort and time.
