The technology has far-reaching implications. Instead of three different sectors for electronics manufacturing, PCB fabrication, components manufacturing, and assembly, there are just two. That is because printed circuit manufacture and assembly are essentially fused into one continuous manufacturing operation.
Such a solution will greatly increase control, and harness the revenue presently lost in supply chain management. A major electronics supply chain management association has stated
“Billions of dollars in inefficiencies exist in the extended supply chain which few if any companies are able to identify, manage and capture on their own. This enormous value remains trapped up and down the chain and unlocking it would release billions of dollars to the ecosystem.”
The technology greatly simplifies supply chain management by reducing to a minimum the number of items that must be managed.
