    Dial P for Procurement Crossover: Does the CHIPS Act provide the Helpful Incentives the U.S. needs?

    Dial P for Procurement Crossover: Does the CHIPS Act provide the Helpful Incentives the U.S. needs?

    On July 27th, the Senate passed the CHIPS and Science Act of 2022. It is now awaiting President Biden’s signature. Proponents of the bill say it will reduce U.S. dependence on foreign producers of semiconductor chips by building manufacturing capabilities at home. Skeptics – which oddly include both progressive Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and conservative Republicans – say it amounts to “corporate welfare.” So who is right?
    The CHIPS in the CHIPS Act stands for ‘Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors.’ But are the incentives, and the resulting changes, actually “Helpful” for the U.S. semiconductor industry?
    In this Dial P for Procurement crossover episode, Kelly Barner digs into the global semiconductor market and talks about some relevant considerations not covered in the language of the legislation:
    • What’s in the bill?
    • What can and can’t be done with the funding?
    • Why has U.S. semiconductor manufacturing capacity has been falling since the 1990s?
    • How long will it take to see the benefits?
    • And issues like sustainability and intellectual property that still have to be resolved before this bill can achieve the ultimate vision.

    Supply Chain Back to School with Mike Griswold of Gartner

    Supply Chain Back to School with Mike Griswold of Gartner

    Mike Griswold is the Vice President of Research at Gartner, specializing in retail with a particular focus on forecasting and replenishment. He is responsible for Gartner’s annual Top 25 Supply Chain ranking and joins Supply Chain Now on a monthly basis to discuss the latest in retail supply chains from an analyst’s perspective.
    Much of the country is either back to school or headed there soon – but what about our supply chains? If they had to pack their backpacks and start the school year off on the right foot, what would they do?
    In this episode, Mike takes global supply chains ‘back to school’ with co-hosts Greg White and Scott Luton:
    • Official recession designation or not, the best defense is a good offense
    • Employee retention is already critical for supply chains, but it will only become more so as human-centric digital automation is adopted
    • Cash management and inventory management are absolutely essential – and supply chain leaders need to work with finance to get to the head of the class

Insightful and engaging!

It’s obvious that the Supply Chain Now team puts extraordinary effort into every single episode of the podcast. But what makes this show a true standout is the quality of the guests, stories, and strategies shared. Highly recommend listening and subscribing!

Very genuine

I enjoy the wide variety of supply chain topics and the team of hosts bring an interesting perspective to the conversations.

elephant282 ,

Outdated information.

10 minuets into an episode in 06/21 they finished talking about sports accolades to shove an advertisement for the guest.

Next episode I listened to they talked about prices of semi conductors in 1990.

Listen to these guys complain about how life has changed if you love outdated podcasts.
