OEMs need to improve the way they manage their demand for electronic components if they are to handle the risks inherent in an increasingly complex supply chain, Alberto Della Chiesa, Vice-President for Supply Chain Solutions at STMicroelectronics told a conference hosted by Future Electronics in Leipzig on 12 November.
