Manoeuvring the perfect storm

Manoeuvring the perfect storm. Earlier we wrote about how component lead times are rising and we are now finding ourselves amidst what is commonly described as the perfect storm – a significant global electronics component shortage.

According to Gartner, predictions. the worldwide semiconductor shortage will persist through 2021, and is expected to recover to normal levels by the second quarter of 2022,

Partners prioritised by component manufacturers

Data Respons Solutions has a long term and strong relationship with our Taiwanese partners, who in turn have a strong stance in terms of buying power. These partners are prioritised by component manufacturers and keep buffer stock on critical components.

How our Taiwan office operates

Our own office in Taiwan regularly checks whether our partners have shortages, delays, trouble delivering or confirming delivery. They aid our partners in sourcing lacking components and suggest replacements in cooperation with our technical resources.

A network of qualified brokers

Our partners, our Taiwan office as well as our Operations Managers in Norway, Sweden, Denmark & Germany have a network of qualified brokers to pull on, have good systems and can make quick decisions with both brokers and our customers.

Solutions to aid the shortage situation

Long-term planning and early involvement remain key, it’s as simple as it is difficult. We are flexible in terms of coming up with solutions that can aid the current situation, e.g. through increased local warehousing and long lead item sourcing of critical components. In situations where future sourcing options are fully explored, exhausted or have become extremely costly, Data Respons Solutions has the capability and the competence to do a complete redesign.
