The Sustainment Slog

Product Pruning and Finding Your Point of No Return

When does sustainment become a slog? When does the bottom one percent of your sales become too much to bear? In this week’s Fish Fry, we are diving into the world of OEM product management with Ethan Plotkin and Siku Thompson from GDCA. Ethan, Siku and I discuss supply chain trust, integrated sustainment, and the hidden costs associated with ad hoc orders. Also this week, we take a closer look at some revolutionary new research from Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab that is creating drinking water from atmospheric humidity with a little help from metal-organic frameworks.

AVX Supercapacitors: PrizmaCap

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and AVX

If your application requires a supercapacitor, there are a lot of options. You need the right form factor, temperature range, weight, and capacitance, of course. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Eric DeRose of AVX about choosing the right supercapacitor and about PrizmaCap - a new supercapacitor with low height, high temperature, and lightweight.
