Charlie Barnhart & Associates LLC (CBA), a leading provider of hard data about the cost drivers and risks of global electronics manufacturing, announces that Eric Miscoll, Principal, will present a paper titled “How to Calculate the True Cost of Global Electronics Outsourcing” at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX. The presentation will be held during Session BUS1, titled  ”Supply Chain Management: Modeling, Processes, and Obsolescence,” which will take place Tuesday, October 18, 2011 from 2-4 p.m. in room 202D.

The outsourcing of electronics manufacturing has become a common business solution for many OEMs. Unfortunately, conducting an accurate True Cost of Outsourcing (TCO) analysis is less common. OEMs and EMS alike need to be able to do so in order to determine when the use of outsourcing to specific geographies is the best viable business solution.

As the outsourcing of electronics manufacturing by OEMs has grown into a global industry over the last few decades, it has become increasingly important that OEMs analyze the total cost of their outsourcing initiatives and not focus just on the price paid to their EMS and ODM suppliers. A proper TCO analysis involves consideration of costs both inside and outside of the OEM. This paper will present the variables that are involved in such and analysis.


Charlie Barnhart & Associates, LLC focuses on the intersection between the electronics OEM and its electronics manufacturing services provider. The company collects detailed case study data on the costs of these services. Charlie Barnhart & Associates then presents the data to the industry through workshops and webinars.
