MIAMI, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today,as a first in its class case management tool that gives engineers and purchasers access to next-generation market intelligence about component selection as well as supply chain risk scores related to market availability, part pricing history, and inventory fluctuations, all in one site. This is one of the only comprehensive digital solutions leveraging anonymized risk assessment data for electronic components to help Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Contract Manufacturers (CMs), and Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) navigate the components landscape and resolve supply chain problems.

"Technology manufacturers are currently dealing with issues like obsolete parts with no end in sight, and to react to these problems, they need to utilize the principles of case management, which is why Datalynq's tool is so important," said Yashar Shahabi, Senior VP of Digital Solutions at Sourceability. "The solution replaces traditional spreadsheets like Excel that can't manage the complex task of case management. It now collates a variety of information, including risk assessment, in a single, legible window, that helps providers get ahead of the shortages in the future through more robust planning and preparation."

Datalynq will help providers visualize key insights like pricing trends and component availability to save valuable time. The solution offers access to at-risk parts information and market intelligence, which can impact production line and repair operations, and creates cases to guide providers through different custom resolution options tailor-made for companies. The tool then finds the right solutions, learning from in-depth market intelligence, to generate robust metrics, including cost avoidance data, and cost-saving opportunities.

The Design Risk Score tool provides a view on the risk associated with "designing in" a part. The score utilizes supply data, lead times, and product life cycle to calculate a risk score from low to high. The Market Availability Score tool offers a view into how readily Datalynq expects a given part to be obtainable. It analyzes a number of supply sources to provide trends that give users unique data insights to aid in their part selection process.

"Datalynq's scores offer a broader view of the electronic component market that will help purchasers effectively and efficiently buy," Shahabi continued. "As the shortages continue, it's more important than ever to ensure our providers understand component availability and the risks associated with buying a particular product."

Case Management

Forewarned is forearmed, but planning for disruptions before the warning signs appear is more beneficial for manufacturers in the long run. But how do you actively plan for mitigation before you know the disaster? You do it through case management.

Case Management

The U.S. Department of Defense recently issued DMSMS contract language guidance that mandates major changes to how OEMs handle their obsolescence and shortage case management. And the policy update comes with major financial consequences for unwary vendors.
