Our semiconductor experience
Bristlecone understands that every semiconductor company has unique aspects to their demand planning, supply chain planning and manufacturing execution processes. These translate into a unique set of requirements for a planning and execution system, which must be incorporated into a supply chain solution, whether the modeling is being done for a manufacturer or a fab-less organisation.
We take pride in the value that we add through our prebuilt customisations and templates that are a result of our in-depth understanding of the dynamics of the supply chain and the best practices gathered from our extensive experience in providing supply chain solutions to semiconductor companies.
We provide ready to connect contract manufacturing solution for inventory visibility and tracking. Our unique accelerated deployment methodology ensures a quick return on investments, enabling you to go live in a time span as short as six weeks.
