Connect Component Library and SupplyChain

Connect Your Component Library to the Supply Chain

Design engineers must have the ability to make intelligent component selections involving critical supply chain information without having to leave their design environment. In today’s world, end-of-life status, lead time, part preference and trusted/consistent parametric data are as important to your company’s design process as is the standard CAD content.
