Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials 2019  +

Location
College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center
College Park , MD


Thanks for attending the Symposium on Counterfeit Parts and Materials June 26-28, 2018. Plans are underway for the 2019 event. Check back here for details.

Counterfeit Symposium Panel Discussion

Dr. Michael Azarian, CALCE, speaks during the panel discussion 'How is AS6171 Being Flowed Down? Challenges with AS671 Accreditation--Can it Handle Obsolete Part?' at the 2018 Symposium.

 


 

Changes in electronic supply chain had been fast and furious in the last decades and its impact on the practices of companies is still evolving. It is well understood that, the scourge of counterfeit electronic parts is related to the changes in supply chain but it is only one of the many impacts. This symposium will provide a forum to cover all aspects of changes in the electronic parts supply chain on how an organization performs part selection and management through whole life cycle of the parts. Going beyond anecdotes and examples of counterfeit parts, this symposium focuses on the solutions that are available and are under development by all sectors of the industry.

 



The symposium is organized by SMTA in conjunction with Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA. This symposium is a valuable resource for quality and reliability managers, supply chain managers, brand protection specialists, inspectors, marketing and procurement policy makers, contracts and legal management, security specialists and government agencies. Our focus is to provide relevant information to the professionals that can be used for solving problems today while planning for a different business and technology environment in the future.
