Due to rapid technological advances, a single mis-step in the procurement process of electronic components can be a costly mistake. For instance, lack of documentation can severely injure the communication between the engineers and the procurement team, further resulting in the possible acquisition of parts with limited functionality. Consistent and thorough documentation practices along with traceability of components can help ensure that your production is efficient and adheres to the budget.
Documentation starts with the engineering team. While there are various strategies to documenting components efficiently, one key piece of information is the manufacturer’s part number. Because the part number is the same across all vendors, it is easier for your procurement team to acquire it from your distributor. Documenting the manufacturer’s part number eliminates miscommunication and saves time, furthermore increasing productivity.
A major issue in today’s supply chain is the distribution of counterfeit components. To ensure that the electronic equipment and parts you purchase are authentic, it is important to acquire traceability from your supplier. This will help ensure quality production.
Traceability is the capability of verifying location, history and other pertinent information about a specific component. Distributors that sell authentic components will have the documentation supporting the quality and origin of the product readily available. All of the components supplied by M.S. Hi-Tech are properly identified and fully traceable at each point of the supply chain.
Documents describing traceability can include information such as testing performed on the component, environmental and ethical factors pertaining to the production of such parts as well as it’s capabilities and parameters. Both traceability and documentation are crucial to an efficient, quality production. When purchasing components, be sure that your distributor is able to provide you with the necessary documentation and proper support before and after the purchase is complete.
When purchasing electronic components of a large brand such as 3M or AdamTech, it is important to use an authorized franchised distributor. Authorized distributors such as M.S. Hi-Tech acquire the components, materials and equipment directly from the manufacturer, ensuring that the product is authentic. Each part that you receive will contain the original indication that it is from the Original Material Manufacturer (OMM), Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), or Original Component Manufacturer (OCM).
Another advantage of utilizing the services of an authorized franchised distributor is their ability to provide customer support before and after the purchase. Franchised distributors such as M.S. Hi-Tech that offer their customers a wide variety of franchised lines are able to offer you the best solution for any manufacturing issue you may have.
