First, we asked you to send in your questions for Happy Holden, Joe Fjelstad, and Eric Camden in our “Just Ask” series. Now, it’s IPC President and CEO John Mitchell’s turn! A regular PCB007 columnist, John focuses on many of the challenges affecting the global electronics industry supply chain. Over the years, he has served as an engineer, manager, and executive at a variety of companies and organizations. We hope you enjoy “Just Ask John.”
Q: Why doesn't IPC publish a global book-to-bill number?
A: The book-to-bill number requires a sufficient number of company participants. Historically, we have had robust participation in North America. We are working with our members in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere to explore a global book-to-bill number in the future.
