A White Paper on the top five pitfalls of Managing Electronic Part Data In-House and the benefits of using third party tools instead.
5 Pitfalls White Paper Abstract
Many electronics original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) choose to manage their part data in-house. This paper outlines the five biggest pitfalls of doing so, and demonstrates how the use of third-party tools and services can alleviate those concerns.

The five pitfalls we will cover are:

  1. Wasted Time and Resources
  2. Poor Part Selection
  3. Inefficient Obsolescence Management
  4. Non-Measurable Processes
  5. Getting Lost in the Data

By exploring these pitfalls and their consequences, we will make the case that subscribing to a third-party service will result in lower costs, improved resource efficiency, and better end products.
