UMT’s supply chain management MBA concentration gets students up to speed in a hot, high-paying, high-demand area

As Amazon shows, mastery of Supply Chain Management can make the difference between great success, middling performance, or bankruptcy.”

— J. Davidson Frame, UMT Academic Dean

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, February 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is no argument why Amazon.com is a smashing success. Need a specialty screw driver? Amazon’s got it and can put it in your hands in one or two days, with free shipping. Really want a small bonsai tree? Amazon’s got it. Groceries? Go to Amazon. It is no accident that Amazon is called “the everything store.” Unhappy with an item you receive? Return it with no questions asked. Got a defective product? Contact Amazon and get a replacement in one or two days. Want good pricing? For most items, Amazon is the cheapest guy in town.

What is Amazon’s secret sauce? A key ingredient goes by the humdrum name, supply chain management (SCM). All businesses deal with supply chains, and as Amazon shows, mastery of SCM can make the difference between great success, middling performance, or bankruptcy. A company’s supply chain runs the gamut from “upstream” sources of the supplies of goods and services a company needs in order to function to “downstream” distribution of its own goods and services to customers.

In Amazon’s case, it has established relations with hundreds of thousands of vendors who agree to fill orders from Amazon at lightning speed. It has made arrangements where many of its vendors pack and ship their products to customers via express delivery within moments of receiving an order. It also has hundreds of warehouses that maintain inventory of hot items that it can deliver quickly, sometimes with same-day service. And much more. All this effort is coordinated through Amazon’s SCM processes and technology.

The University of Management and Technology has recently launched an SCM concentration under its MBA program. As an MBA degree, it offers students key knowledge and skills in good business practice, from marketing to finance to leadership. The SCM concentration courses cover the full range of skills needed to manage a business’s supply chain, including SCM principles, strategic sourcing, contracting, and risk management. The degree is offered online. It is super-flexible: students study at their own pace and can register at any time. And it is affordable – the state of Virginia just ranked UMT’s tuition as the #1 most affordable out-of-state tuition school in the entire state (http://www.collegecalc.org/lists/virginia/most-affordable-out-of-state-tuition/).

Does it make sense to pursue a career in SCM? Absolutely! According to the US Department of Labor, the median pay level for the supply chain managers was $74,590 in May 2017, and the job outlook will grow 7% annually in the next decade (source: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/business-and-financial/logisticians.htm). Remember: All organizations must manage their supply chain. The demand is there for people with the right knowledge and skills.

One last word: Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, is the richest man in the world … he built his fortune by reinventing SCM.

The product offers the added benefit of deferred definition; the developer can change the keyboard, specific keyboard matrix features (such as special function keys and macro keys), and even the interface to the host system.

The FlexMatrix™ SK5221 is useful for any keyboard that needs to interface with a PC's via I2C port. The device is power efficient with power consumption less than 1uA. The external PS/2 port can be interfaced to any standard PS/2 mouse devices like touchpad, pointing stick. It is ideally suited to consumer products like laptop PC’s built-in keyboard, peripheral keyboards of tablet PCs, mobile phone.

The FlexMatrix™ SK5221 key matrix programmability also reduces the customization needs of vertical applications like integrated keypads of instruments, industrial keyboards, point-of-sale (POS) keyboards.

The FlexMatrix™ keyboard encoders expedite time-to-market by making keyboard development simpler, faster and more flexible. This FlexMatrix™ product offers the features of a whole series of standard and custom encoders in a single part, thereby lowering a developer's engineering resource commitment and total solution cost.
Key Features of the FlexMatrix™ SK5221:

— HID over I2C interface v1.0 to host

— Provides port for external PS/2 mouse and keyboard device

Tempo Automation Demonstrates the Advantages of Its Automated Printed Circuit Board Assembly Factory at DesignCon

Company continues to transform electronics product development with new smart factory in San Francisco & significant updates to its factory automation software

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tempo Automation, the world’s fastest electronics manufacturer for prototyping and low-volume production of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA), announces the opening of a new smart factory in San Francisco. Highlighted at DesignCon in Tempo Automation’s Booth #200, the company has also released new product software updates as part of its continued mission to improve the way electrical engineers, product designers, and manufacturers bring their innovations to market.

With its impressive expansion in high-growth markets, including aerospace and defense, medical technology, and autonomous and electric vehicles, Tempo needed to increase its production capacity, opening a new 42,000 square foot smart factory in San Francisco’s Design District in August 2018. Tempo’s new factory immediately doubled the company’s production capacity, with space to expand output even more to accommodate its customers’ growing demands. The new factory also includes more corporate office space to house Tempo’s growing software, sales, and marketing teams, which have more than doubled in the last year.

“Tempo has seen tremendous growth over the last year as more customers in a range of industries see how we can help them get great products to market faster. Our proprietary automation software enables our factory to produce complex printed circuit board assemblies with unmatched quality and speed,” says Jeff McAlvay, CEO, Tempo Automation. “By delivering improved speed, reliability, and transparency to our customers, Tempo empowers innovators to bring their designs to market faster—a boon for competitive industries like aerospace, medtech, industrial automation, consumer electronics, and automotive.”

To further accelerate the product development cycle from design to manufacture, Tempo also delivers a host of significant product software updates. With these updates, Tempo further empowers engineers to increase the speed with which they can bring their electronics products to market.
Tempo’s new product software updates include:

• The Tempo Order Tracker

At each stage of the manufacturing process, the Order Tracker automatically displays status updates—from the initial order, throughout the SMT and inspection processes on the factory floor, to shipment—giving the customer real-time visibility into the progress of their board build.

• Tempo’s Automatic Pick and Place Machine Programming software

Tempo’s factory is auto-configured for production, as the system analyzes the CAD files and Bill of Material (BOM) data customers upload via the company’s web portal. Each machine in the production line is programmed automatically, and a build plan is uploaded as a digital traveler to the devices that factory employees use. This update enables Tempo to yield event faster production of PCB assemblies and on-time delivery.

• Tempo’s Automated Optical Inspection Auto-Program Generation software

New software updates from Tempo further the company’s ability to deliver high complexity designs at unparalleled quality and speed by speeding the automated inspection of finished PCB assemblies.

As part of their mission to empower designers to work with manufacturers throughout the entire build process, Tempo also releases at DesignCon a new book, Design for Manufacturing for HDI Printed Circuit Boards: What You Need to Know for Board Build Success. Focused on HDI (High Density Interconnect) PCBA builds, the new literature details the source of HDI manufacturing challenges and shows how engineers can avoid the traps that compromise manufacturability. Visitors to the Tempo Automation booth (#200) at DesignCon can receive a free copy of this book.
