Abstract:In the homogeneous industry of electronics manufacturing, it is difficult to improve supply chain performance. Global Electronics B.V. is a PCB assembly company who needs to reduce the obsolete components to get a more competitive supply chain. But it finds itself in the difficult situation where supplier restrictions such as high MOQs and full-reel ordering must be met. Combine this with the large number of unique electronic components and quickly the stock levels are rising with components which will not be used in other orders. This thesis presents a variation on the classic EOQ model to reduce the excess material per order, to eventually decrease the yearly value of obsolete components. The proposed model tells that the customers of Global Electronics sometimes must change their ordered quantity a little bit, to get economic and sustainable advantages for both the customer and Global Electronics.
