The Silicone Valley company, Tensoft, an end-to-end ERP and supply chain solution provider for the technology industry, announced that it has co-authored an article on supply chain best-practices in the September 2012 edition of the GSA Forum, the quarterly publication of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA).

The article, entitled Anatomy of a Successful Supply Chain Integration, outlines the goals of each supply chain participant and profiles the deliverables in a successful real-world supply chain integration from three different perspectives:

  • An assembly and test provider (Amkor Technology);
  • A fabless IC company (Amalfi Semiconductor);
  • A supply chain management (SCM) provider (Tensoft).

"We welcome this opportunity to collaborate on this article with industry partners and customers in this leading industry publication," says William White, Tensoft chief technology officer. "Our ability to contribute to thought leadership activities such as this article benefits the entire semiconductor ecosystem."

FSM Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) is a SaaS solution for technology companies that have outsourced manufacturing operations as well as traditional semiconductor, integrated circuit, optical, RF, MEMS, Solid State, LED and solar companies. Delivered onsite or in the cloud, FSM supports the manufacturing, supply chain and financial needs of semiconductor and high tech businesses and is designed to scale with a company's growth to meet ever-changing business requirements.

The article is immediately available to download from Tensoft's Resource Center, which also provides access to previous GSA Forum articles spanning topics such as semiconductor cost reduction strategies, scaling fabless operations and IPO readiness.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
