It’s very important in the electronics industry to keep track of lead times to ensure that the parts you require for production don’t fall under a lead-time that would put you in a line down situation.
We’re pleased to update you on our current lead-time report, which has been showing a stable pattern on an average of 21.5 weeks.
Two increases have been noticed for both Samsung and Fairchild Semiconductor. Samsung has shown an increase from 12 weeks to 14 weeks. Fairchild Semiconductor has shown an increase from 16 weeks to 18 weeks.
Earlier in the month, we informed our customers of an increase for Micron due to the earthquake from March 2014. We are still reporting an increase in lead-times for Micron from 14 weeks to 20 weeks.
Unexpected lead times can cause some disruption in your production, so be sure to check your purchasing schedules ahead of time to avoid any line down situations. As always, our friendly and dedicated team at Lantek Corporation are here to assist you.
