How Does WIN SOURCE Maintain The Sensor Supply Chain Security?

Comprised of around 20,000 distinct products, the global sensor market is diverse and worth an estimated US$152.11 billion at the end of 2022, maintaining significant room for growth. It is the vast capabilities of sensors that provoke sensitivity to the security of their production.

Put simply, sensors are devices that feedback in a predictable, consistent and measurable manner on a substance or a physical process. Whilst a wide variety of product types are available, production is subject to complex processes and inconsistent standards. Sensor manufacturers must monitor not only the supply and demand relationship in the market, but also security issues.

As uptake of Internet of Things devices and capabilities grows alongside the expectation for 5G networks, the biggest demand trend hails from automotive electronics and consumer electronics. As demand ramps up in these growth areas, sensors provide numerous advantages to supply chain security.

Sensors facilitate improved operational efficiency through automation and provide more accurate monitoring which reduces repair costs and maintenance downtime. Enabling real-time inventory tracking through improved demand planning, they also inform product development and enhance product lifecycle management. Furthermore, they enhance customer service by connecting more closely with customers.

Traditional barriers to smart sensor adoption are also disappearing as reliable IoT platforms become more widespread and advances in technology increase performance. Businesses accept that smart sensors increase the value captured through the supply chain as they accelerate the exchange of physical data to digital data to help improve performance, capacity, reliability, and innovation.

One pertinent use for industry is that sensors can conduct predictive maintenance programs and monitor machines or assets to gauge their current health. Any industrial motor, for example, has a life span that begins at installation and ends with the motor failing. At different stages of its life, faults can be detected by different types of maintenance programs or sensors including continuous preventive maintenance, vibration detection, temperature sensing, and sound detection.

Win Source has worked diligently to become a leading independent distributor in Asia. Through the continuous optimisation of the electronic manufacturing procurement chain and relying on its own big data IT service platform, the company continues to optimise the online shopping platform and supplier network for the benefit of its customers. Simultaneously, the company has developed the Win Source internal supply chain operation system to support its global supply chain.

With a solid 23 years of growth behind it, Win Source has built a set of independent and mature supplier management systems, supported by a strict supplier approval process, a flexible real-time procurement process, as well as its own unique quality control system, from packaging inspection through to cargo labelling Inspection, and on to product appearance testing (Visual Inspection and Nondestructive Testing). All whilst compliant to precise environment and humidity control, and the ANSI/ESD S20.20 certified processing flow. Not satisfied with merely accurate, Win Source strives for efficiency too.

With the advent of the Internet of Things era and the advancement of sensor technology, Win Source maintains its forward-facing aspect. Embracing new technologies whilst adopting appropriate plans to maintain the security of the sensor supply chain, the company strives to increase the value obtained through the supply chain with its dedication to standards.

As is the way of Win Source, potential suppliers are strictly assessed and reviewed. Expectations for clear safety requirements and responsibilities are inbuilt into contracts and agreements with suppliers, whilst effective product traceability is established throughout the supply chain. This enables Win Source to track each stage of the supply chain to identify and troubleshoot potential security issues at every link to maintain the security of the sensor supply chain.
