Must the R & D and supply chain coordination mechanism be built for the R & D management of chip companies?

SAP provides different solutions for different chip companies.

When it comes to the research and development management of chip companies, many chip company managers say that the pressure is super large. As we all know, the chip semiconductor industry is an industry that focuses on asset investment and starts at tens of billions. And whether you choose a high, middle or low-grade track, the competition is extremely hot. The cost of low-end chips has been maximized, and the middle end is catching up with each other. The iteration is very frequent, and the high-end idealization may never produce a product. Therefore, it is not easy to do a good job in an industry that seems to be in great demand. We take chip R & D management as an example. We need efficiency, cost reduction, the right way, and of course, quality. It is really difficult to achieve collaborative design, high sharing and collaboration of information internally, synchronous acceleration of external partners externally, and prevention of risks such as supply chain interruption. Because of the poor R & D management of the chip company, ultimately leading to the failure of streaming, the loss of money and energy is an unbearable pain for the chip company.

 

 

Recently, I heard a saying: it is very important to build a collaborative mechanism between R & D and supply chain in the R & D management of chip companies. Is that so? In this issue, Si Xiang, an expert in digital transformation of chip semiconductors, will unveil such a mystery in “research and development management of chip companies”.

 

What happens to the low degree of coordination between R & D and supply chain in the R & D management of chip companies?

 

Let’s turn around and see what happens if the R & D and supply chain coordination is low? First of all, we need to find out what the purpose of R & D is? Is it mass production? Of course, it is for delivery, that is, cash. That means that it is not OK when you develop it. It is also necessary to mass produce it. After mass production, it is necessary to sell it, and then complete the delivery and get the money. This is the realization of a cycle. Sometimes our lead time from R & D to delivery is very long, which may not be entirely due to the R & D management of chip companies. It is often slow in the coordination with the whole supply chain, product setting, process adjustment, etc. if there is no coordination mechanism, the response speed of the whole supply chain will be very slow, affecting delivery and experience.

 

What is the synergy between R & D and supply chain in the R & D management of chip companies?

 

Since there will be many big problems due to the lack of R & D and supply chain coordination, what kind of system or system does our chip company’s R & D management need to build to enable our chip company’s R & D achievements to be delivered more quickly and win the market? There is an important management concept: integration of sales, research and production. Nowadays, more and more chip companies not only pay attention to the R & D cost management of chip companies, but also pay more attention to the digital ability of chip companies from product to delivery, such as building a unified collaborative platform from R & D to supply chain.

 

We might as well learn more about the architecture and advantages of integration from R & D to supply chain by using the R & D management solutions of semiconductor chip companies brought by SAP brand, which are adopted by 9 of the top 10 semiconductor enterprises in the world.

 

 

SAP’s solution for the R & D management of chip companies above: through the integrated control platform from R & D to production and operation, the data management and change linkage of the whole product value chain can be realized, and the centralized control and change control of the whole process of product data can be improved, so as to achieve the traceability of the whole life cycle of product quality. From R & D to production, the whole process is managed transparently to improve the collaborative ability of enterprises from design to operation. The data of the whole life cycle of the product is centrally managed through a unified platform and driven by data-based decisions.

 

From this, we can see that behind the whole systematization of R & D management of chip companies, there is a process of data and structure to support and realize coordination with the supply chain. In essence, it reflects a whole set of connection between data and your standards and processes behind data, so as to realize the R & D supply chain collaboration platform and mechanism.

 

Of course, in terms of R & D for different chip companies, SAP also provides us with different solutions. For example, build a (PLM + ERP) platform that runs through R & D and supply chain integration, realize seamless connection between R & D and supply chain operation, and comprehensively achieve efficient collaboration in data, process and other aspects to obtain a set of solutions.

 

 

Finally, we would like to say that there are certain limitations in the pure R & D cost management of chip companies or the R & D management of chip companies. In this regard, our chip company managers should view and sublimate the research and development management of chip companies from the perspective of business. Of course, regarding the R & D management of chip companies, SAP also brought their latest work: SAP EDP system. But from the perspective of the whole chip company’s business, we need to do a better job in the integration of sales, research and production, and the coordination management of R & D and supply chain.
