“The Perfect Order Award recognizes suppliers that share our commitment to quality and superior customer service,” said Don Elario, director of quality for the Americas and global leader of the quality network for Arrow Electronics. “At Arrow, we measure our own and our suppliers’ order-fulfillment activities using the same perfect-order measurement system. Quarter after quarter, Analog Devices has consistently been the top perfect-order supplier among all semiconductor companies.”
Analog Devices achieved a 96 percent 2011 Supplier Perfect Order Index, according to Arrow Electronics’ ordering metrics, the highest ranking of any semiconductor supplier in North America due to ADI’s on-time delivery record, fewest customer credits and fewest receiving discrepancies.
