Digi-Key Electronics, a global distributor of Electronic components with a wide range of supply and fast delivery, has released a new video series “Supply Chain Transformation”. This series of videos shows how components flow through the supply chain as they are integrated and incorporated into next-generation asset monitoring and tracking systems.

This trilogy video series is produced by Analog Devices, Inc. Sponsored by Molex and produced by Supplyframe, it highlights the various sites a product goes through from design to production, including warehouses, manufacturing facilities, shipping, and more. With global supply chains in the spotlight this year, the use of accessible, automated monitoring and tracking systems is more important than ever.

Digi-Key, ADI and Molex present a trilogy video series titled “The Supply Chain Transformation”.
