Abstract: In a world of shrinking product development cycles and continual cost pressures, it is important to consider all costs in the outsourcing equation. Developing product around existing original design manufacturer (ODM) technology may save time and cost in product development. In other cases, tapping an electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider with robust engineering skills may represent the best option. Tailyn Communication Company, Ltd. is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM), ODM and EMS company which serves the industrial PC, wireless communications, point of sale and networking markets. This presentation will look at ODM and EMS business models and discuss the differences between the service focus of each model and the synergies that they can bring to each other.
