Organizations that Manufacture electronic products must manage different parts and components that are used within their products.

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

IHS Markit is the leading developer of world-class component databases, applications to manage component obsolescence, and custom data services tailored to your component research and sourcing needs.

With tools to access component pricing, availability, compliance, environmental (EU & China RoHS, REACH SVHC, PDSL, DRC), alternates (FFF), counterfeit risk and reusability information, EOL/PCN & Counterfeit alerts, including the ability to integrate information into your ERM and PLM systems, you can cultivate and maintain a healthy parts supply chain.

Leverage our solutions to improve strategic sourcing for direct and MRO parts, avoid manufacturing delays caused by obsolete or unavailable parts, and assure your products compliance with environmental regulations.
