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 – CAPS Universe – with over 500 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.
