Arista Electronic Systems
Your Local Standby Manufacturer for Electronic Devices
Do you have a Disaster Recovery plan for your electronic device production ?
Your IT systems have fail-over capacity, if a server breaks there is an idle server, usually at a remote location, pre-loaded with your applications and a synchronised copy of your data,ready to take over the workload. Fail-over systems are usually classified as Cold, Warm and Hot depending upon how quickly and easily the secondary system can take over from the primary.
Your CTO will be very insistent on just how many nines are in the SLA with your hosting provider.
IT Systems are important, many would argue " mission critical", but if administration and communication are essential to your business, how much more so is your actual product ?
We appreciate that you may have selected an offshore manufacturing partner for very logical and valid commercial reasons, and you will be aware from the process of on-boarding your supplier in the first place that establishing a supplier relationship and going through the pre-production processes, tooling set up and quality assurance is not something that should be, or indeed can be achieved quickly.
Establishing a secondary standby manufacturing partner that can step in at short notice should be as much a part of your long term corporate governance agenda as ensuring the up-time of your back office business systems.
There are many reasons to invest in redundant capacity, not all of them as dramatic as an international incident or other unforeseen logistics problem. Standby, in-country manufacturing also improves your responsiveness to unexpected product demand or other short term capacity challenges.
