Building Resilience in the Semiconductor and Electronics Supply Chains
The Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association's third Supply Chain Management Forum will be held on August 2, 2013.
This year's topic, "Building Supply Chain Resilience", is a top concern for electronics and semiconductor supply chains. Recent events, such as the 2011 Japan tsunami and Thailand flooding, resulted in massive disruptions of production, transportation, and information flows and cost these supply chains millions of dollars.
The SCM Forum is planned to support Singapore's electronics and semiconductor supply chains in their re-evaluation of the balance between the desirable degrees of tightness and leanness in supply chain management and the ability to buffer and protect against supply chain disruptions that cannot be planned for and handled in conventional ways. Prominent industry speakers from all stages along the supply chain will share their current approaches to resilience in their organization.
Participants will work in small teams with the speakers and guided by the trainers to create a framework for assessing the pros and cons of the approaches, cost-and-benefits, organizational considerations, global issues, and conflicting and supporting relationships between ideas and best practices. The participant teams will then be asked to present a concise summary of their discussion to the entire group.

Keynote Speaker - Sean Hunkler, Executive VP & General Manager of Operations, NXP Semiconductors
Julian Khong, Managing Director, Worldwide Operations Global Sourcing, Applied Materials
review of current approaches to building supply chain resilience using specific examples from semiconductor and electronics companies with operations in Singapore
exchange of experience between semiconductor and electronics industry SCM practitioners from "real" events in their companies that threatened or actually disrupted their business operations, how they responded and what the outcomes were
understand how the various stages along the electronics supply chain are different affected by disruptions and what priorities must be considered at that stage
identification of the cost-benefit considerations in building a resilient supply chain in our competitive and volatile industry
building a common conceptual understanding of supply chain management and supply chain resilience
adding selected insights from state-of-art supply chain research to help participants thinking "out-of-the-box" and to systematically design innovative solutions for their respective companies and task environments
compilation and joint assessment of key learning points that participants can take home and apply in their operations and how the entire organization can incorporate "Resilience" into their thinking
