SMTC has partnered with our key Electronic Component Distribution and has implemented In-Plant Stores (IPS). These are operated by the distribution partners and all material sourced with them are pipelined through the stores. The inventory is owned and managed by the on-site distributors. SMTC initiates a pull from the store once the product is scheduled to be built (24 hours before build date). SMTC takes ownership of the inventory when the pull has been transacted.

In-Plant Store Benefits:

Lower Risk Profile

  • Inventory ownership window substantially reduced (72 hour pull window)
  • Avoids build up of a large number of line items
  • On site distributor staff speedy communication and execution
  • Reduced waste and inventory shrinkage

Responsiveness

  • Ability to dynamically scale to demand changes and mix changes
  • Maximizes leverage of world class inventory management systems

Proximity

  • Two to four weeks of product resides at our physical location
  • Increased velocity on order cycle time
  • Product is more secure than electronically bonded inventory at a centralized warehouse
