As businesses search for lower costs, supply chains have evolved from local to regional to global, and have led to an offshoring of component suppliers and contract manufacturers. As a result, new risks associated with Intellectual Property (IP) have been introduced into design and supply chains. Mitigating these risks is critical for the commercialization of new products.
During this session, you will learn:
• What's happening to companies with global supply chains?
• What factors are contributing to the problem?
• What solutions are available to mitigate IP risks?
Gain 5 valuable insights about:
• IP Leakage and where it typically happens
• What contributes to the problem?
• Current Supply Chain models
• Key product considerations
• Structural solutions to protect IP
