BOM Intelligence: Bill of Material Management Software

Go beyond BOM management. Ascend to a higher level of BOM intelligence.

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 500 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 500 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

Enhanced Capabilities

  • Time-Saving, 1-Step BOM Imports: Upload your BOM in a single step with customized import configurations
  • MegaNAV: Easily select the workflow you need, from anywhere in the application
  • Report Wizard: Create and export standard and custom reports with ease
  • Alerts: Set up automatic notifications for multiple users, view alerts for today, within the last 7 days, 30 days, 6 months or year, display discontinued, EOL, PCN, reinstatement, or counterfeit alerts
  • Part Search: Search for a part by part number, attribute, manufacturer or keyword at any time at the top of any screen, save searches for future use
  • Compare Parts: Compare up to 10 parts, evaluate side-by-side with the differences highlighted
  • Datagrids: Customize your part search results display, link to related risk, part and manufacturer information, export all or portions of the data
  • My Dashboard: See a graphical representation of your BOM’s health—parts, manufacturers and life-cycle status
  • Research Request: Submit a question for our experts to answer, request that parts be added to the database
  • Context-Sensitive and Other Help Options: Access fully searchable electronic help system, page-specific instruction panels and context-sensitive help on each page
  • Customer Support/Training: Access support and training upon request

Grid defection as attractive consumer alternative to reduce energy costs

On the back of rapidly decreasing costs for energy storage and solar photovoltaics (PV), consumers wishing to achieve a low-cost and reliable supply of power are considering grid defection—or at least, partial grid-defection—as an increasingly attractive alternative. But while lower energy costs are certainly welcome news for ..more
