The Case for Vertical Search in the Electronics Industry

Why Google & similar web search engines fail to understand the needs of the Electronics industry in comparison to vertical search engines.

White Paper Abstract

The use of traditional, horizontal search engines such as Google or Yahoo in the electronics industry to locate parts information has resulted in a number of costly inefficiencies. Large amounts of manhours are lost to meticulous data combing. Part selection is sub-optimal, and at-risk parts are either not identified as such or cannot accurately have their level of risk determined.

By contrast, the use of vertical search engines can provide electronics manufacturers and part distributors with not only a larger amount of useful parts data, but with preperformed analysis of that data. In effect, the use of vertical search engines can turn data into actionable intelligence, which can reduce man-hours, cut costs, and improve part selection and risk management.

This whitepaper makes the case that all electronics manufacturing OEMs and distributors, regardless of size, would greatly benefit from the use of vertical search engines for their part selection, procurement and part risk management needs.

"Managing our component database and keeping it updated was a daunting task. Our engineers require the latest information on the electronic components selected for our products and any lapse in the availability or freshness of the data is simply not acceptable. If it weren’t for SiliconExpert’s tools, we would still be living in the stone age.”

John Starr | Component Engineer | Intermec, Inc.

“In the movement to normalize processes, our teams recognized SiliconExpert as the tool that helped us achieve a lot more than expected during our data transition phase. With access to unparalleled amounts of unbiased and complete component data, we immediately realized how much potential time and money could be saved just with the BOM Manager alone. With everything considered,SiliconExpert presented the fastest and best solution.”

Erwan Rivet | Director of Engineering | Honeywell

"In the past, obsolescence data was limited to available/not available stats provided directly by part manufacturers. Parts were selected with little to no insight into their obsolescence lifecycle, leaving the possibility of selecting a soon-to-be obsolete part dangerously high. We’ve seen some nice savings in man hours, rather than going to a bunch of different sources, which is very time consuming, we can often just go to SiliconExpert and get the data we need right away.”
