IHS CAPS+4D Connect
IHS CAPS+4D Connect gives design and component engineers a convenient and powerful tool for managing and cleansing bills of materials (BOMs) and understanding lifecycle and environmental status from a single data source.
The CAPS+4D Connect tool is a powerful, desktop-based bill of materials (BOMs) cleansing and management tool. It provides a fast, visual reference by highlighting years to end of life and years to single source in easily identifiable red, yellow and green colors.
CAPS+4D Connect allows you to optimize and analyze your BOMs via:
- A single view of all relevant component data
- Microsoft Excel integration that makes it easy to import and export your BOMs and parts lists
- Custom export and reporting features to quickly share product and project details with co-workers, suppliers and partners
Multiple Data Sources
CAPS+4D Connect combines and views data from multiple sources without the need for complex IT integrations or expensive specialized hardware. Data integration includes the CAPS™ database, manufacturer’s web sites, internal ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) and other online sources.
CAPS+4D Connect Alerts
In addition, CAPS+4D Connect issues automatic email alerts when any of your components have a change of product change notification (PCN), end of life (EOL), last order date, last shipment date or manufacturer status of any captured parametric field.
