Parts management is no longer just about picking out parts for your electronics designs, it is a lot more. The key to this is quality Bill of Materials (BOM) software tool. Good parts management tools are those which cover everything from the parts you want, manage your Web-based BOM Analyzer, and handle issues of compliance and law within different jurisdictions.
Ciiva Smartparts is the most comprehensive and effective tool for electronic parts management. It has transformed parts management for better performance, higher productivity and innovation. You have supplier and parts data as well as other critical information for the success of your design throughout the lifecycle, at your fingertips.
This is the tool that will help you with design innovation, improving your design and product quality and cost reduction in the process by:
- Centralized BOM Management
- Every member of the team is able to access and get information from the BOM as well as track and know who made changes and where changes are made.
- Ensures Cost Effectiveness and Genuine Electronic Components
- Purchase from the best suppliers at the best market prices from the up to date parts and suppliers database.
- There is no room for counterfeits since the parts are sourced from reputable and licensed suppliers and will even get alerts for counterfeits.
- Auto-sync price and parts data with your internal information for updated Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).
- Controlling Product Design Process
It guarantees efficient management of components supply to take care of obsolescence, risk, compliance and alternate components
- Giving access to a reliable database of up to date component use and get you status information such as PCNs, EOLs and other compliance information like regulations and laws.
