Siemens Digital Industries Software is integrating the Supplyframe platform with the Xpedition PCB-design software to give engineers better visibility into the component supply chain, with real-time checks on availability, demand, cost, compliance, and other parametric data.
“This new solution is a game changer for our OEM customers, who have faced extraordinary challenges in recent years due to a complicated set of dynamic market forces,” said AJ Incorvaia, senior vice president of electronic board systems at Siemens. “Global supply chains have become increasingly unpredictable due to unprecedented geopolitical developments, globally distributed organizations and suppliers, and ever-growing pressure to develop highly complex new products and bring them to market quickly. By leveraging the industry-leading capabilities of Supplyframe’s design-to-source intelligence platform together with Siemens’ industry-leading Xpedition software for electronic systems design, we are equipping our customers with the tools and technologies to compete and thrive in the face of these challenges.”
Acquired by Siemens in 2021, Supplyframe tracks global availability and lead times for over 600M component parts, and captures billions of data signals about part supply, demand, risk and commercial intent. The software also avoids the need to enter component data manually and takes over library maintenance. Using the software, design engineers can compare parts and perform “what-if” part selection analysis.
