Company Description

ams’ sensor solutions and sensor ICs are at the heart of the products and technologies that define our world today – from smartphones and mobile devices to smart homes and buildings, industrial automation, medical technology and driver-assisting vehicles. Our solutions excel in applications requiring extreme precision, dynamic range, high sensitivity, and low power consumption in small form factors.


Project Description

ams serves a broad spectrum of customers and markets with a multi-stage supply chain. Each market and customer has its own needs; therefore, finding an optimal safety stock strategy is a complex problem. The project would focus on defining inventory strategies and simulate their impact on the supply chain performance.
