Electronic Component

Electronic components are an integral part of assemblies and as a result, a bill of materials. These parts are building blocks of an electronic circuit, system, or device.

Given that electronics distributors and manufacturers have so many parts in stock, managing hundreds or even thousands of electronic components is challenging. While many companies still use spreadsheets to manage their electronic components, many are shifting their strategy to use software to manage the assembly and inventory processes for quality assurance.

Who Uses Electronic Components?

Distributors and manufacturers, along with many other professionals across the supply chain, utilize electronic components for a variety of reasons. Manufacturers need to contact distributors for available electronic components, while distributors have a responsibility to deliver the parts on time.

Once received, manufacturers can check the parts against their bill of materials for various assemblies. Electronic systems are then assembled and sold as a finished product. Traditionally, the organization of electronic components was a challenge, however, new products and solutions have streamlined the process.


Organizing Electronic Components

Large-scale management of electronic components can be tedious. Databases keep companies organized, for part inventory or a client relationship to provide data about clients and their needs. When a database combines with an e-commerce tool, the result is an entirely automated e-procurement software, such as the Orbweaver Platform.

The Orbweaver Platform simplifies the electronics ordering and distribution process. Orbweaver’s solution saves distributors, component manufacturers, and contract manufacturers a significant amount of money and time. We can organize electronic components and manage comprehensive electronic component databases to provide buyers with the specific information they need to find the right solutions for their assemblies.

Orbweaver Connect, a universal intake and translation engine, can transfer data between two dissimilar systems (API, EDI, Excel, and much more) to expedite the process of finding the parts for assembly. This secure software uses an automated process to transfer the data, giving the workforce the freedom to tackle more significant strategic initiatives.
