Mobile phone and PC industries outsourcing webinar announced
Aug 25, 2006
Both PC and mobile-phone OEMs are making extensive use of contract manufacturers to reduce cost and increase efficiency. However, the outsourcing dynamics in the two industries and the roles of Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) providers and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) in each supply chain vary dramatically.
To help participants in the PC and mobile-phone industries understand the differences in outsourcing trends between the two supply chains and how they can impact their respective businesses, iSuppli Corp. is hosting a free Webinar event on Wednesday, Aug. 30, entitled: Apples to Pomegranates? Outsourcing Across the Mobile Phone and PC Industries.
Hosted by Jeffrey Wu, analyst, EMS and ODM services for iSuppli, the Webinar will present vital data on key contract manufacturing trends, including:
-- Relative growth rates, contract manufacturers' penetration percentages and the differing tasks performed by ODMs and EMS providers in each supply chain.
-- Manufacturing and outsourcing strategies of the top OEMs in the PC and mobile-phone industries: Dell Inc. and Nokia.
-- EMS and ODM market-share, capacity allocation and customer concentration trends in the PC and mobile-phone markets.
The Webinar will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 30 at 8:30 A.M. U.S. Pacific Time. Attendees can call in to the Webinar to hear Wu's comments and can use an Internet browser to view the presentation slides. Wu will take questions from Webinar attendees.
