Electronic Parts Management Solutions

Boost productivity, cut costs and mitigate risk with a healthy component supply chain.

From design to decommissioning, the product lifecycle presents huge challenges. Components are increasingly complex yet have shorter lifecycles. The innovation imperative, greater regulation, manufacturer consolidation, counterfeit risk and PCN/EOL concerns – all of these pressures can hamper your ability to buy the right components and manage obsolescence.

IHS Markit electronic parts management solutions enable you to master these challenges. With tools to access component pricing, availability, compliance, counterfeit risk, and reusability information, including the ability to integrate information into your ERM and PLM systems, you can cultivate and maintain a healthy parts supply chain.

Underpinning each of our solutions is the world’s largest electronics component database – Parts Intelligence – with over 550+ million components and growing. No other provider offers this number of components, cross-references, part attributes, aftermarket parts or extent of environmental compliance and historical data.

Talk with us today to learn how you can:

  • Optimize your supply chain
  • Master the innovation cycle
  • Achieve procurement savings
  • Reduce production costs
  • Win business and negotiate favorable quotes
  • Achieve regulatory compliance
  • Streamline data management

BOM Intelligence: Bill of Material Management Software

Managing electronic components is more crucial than ever as obsolescence, counterfeit products and environmental non-compliance risks continue to grow. Counterfeit parts alone cost manufacturers $7.5 billion annually in lost revenue. Many BOM management software tools in the market, however, fall short because they use a narrow component database to address expansive challenges.

Access the world’s first intuitive, automated bill-of-materials intelligence tool so you can meet production targets on time and within budget. BOM Intelligence, which evolved from our BOM Management software tool, integrates your bill of materials with obsolescence management, Product Change Notifications (PCN), End-Of-Life (EOL) alerts, and research and analysis. Backed by the industry’s largest electronic components database of nearly 550+ million electronic components, BOM Intelligence also gives you access to the tens of millions of NSNs and part numbers in Haystack Gold.

Key benefits:
  • Get the latest status for 550+ million electronic components
  • Integrate data on tens of millions of NSNs and defense parts numbers
  • Get PCN and EOL alerts to manage compliance, obsolescence, and at-risk components
  • Differentiate products faster, optimize inventory, and avoid costly interruptions
  • Satisfy requirements for functionality, lifecycle, price and compliance

Customer Testimonials

“A lot of companies ‘obsolete’ their way to profitability. We don’t do that... When a competitor obsoletes a part, customers can run into inventory shortages for that part. Our customers know that if they come to the TI site, they’ll find a cross.”

– Mike Hastings, Director, Content Syndication, Texas Instruments

“With the IHS Markit data, we can gain a true picture of the composition of the product from top to bottom, so we can instantly and confidently tell the import/export country and customers whether or not we comply. We reduced delivery time of compliance documentation about RoHS and REACH from weeks to less than 2 days. That’s an estimated 86 percent increase in efficiency.”

– Kimara Chin, Data & Business System Manager, Trimble
