Avnet, Optiant Form Alliance


Avnet Electronics Marketing and Optiant have formed an alliance to help high-tech manufacturers and consumer electronics companies systematically assess their current supply chain strategy, looking for inefficiencies. Together with supply chain and knowledge management consulting firm Eknowtion, Avnet and Optiant deliver a unique opportunity for companies in highly competitive markets to understand how to enhance their current models.
 With an eight-week consulting engagement, the alliance will deliver a targeted supply chain diagnostic for a given product line, based on the unique customer’s requirements and targeting three critical operational challenges: right-sizing inventory levels and locations; optimizing supply chain parameters for high customer service levels; and quantifying the impact of various strategic sourcing options.
