Supply Chain Insight

Modified by Susan Riege on Jun 8, 2018


The Supply Chain Insight dialog

Summary

The Supply Chain Insight dialog provides the supply chain information of placed components.

For components from the Altium Content Vault, supply chain information has already been added. For local components, you need to add the supply chain information through the Part Choice function before the supply chain insight function works. For more information, see Adding Supply Chain Information to a Managed Component.

Access

Hover the cursor over the target component for several seconds.

The Enable Supply Chain Insight option on the System - Design Insight page of the Preferences dialog must be enabled to access this dialog.

Options/Controls

  • Solutions - lists one or more Manufacturer-Supplier Part pairings. When a Manufacturer Part is chosen and added to the associated Part Choices List, the software looks up that part in the Local Part Catalog and the Vendor links associated to it. These are then presented in this region. If you have added a Manufacturer Part that has two associated Vendor links in the catalog, there will be two Manufacturer-Supplier Part pairings listed. Each part pairing consists of the Manufacturer name and Manufacturer-specific part number along with the Supplier name and Supplier-specific part number. The current stock availability of each vended part is also presented.

    Affording some level of control over approved Suppliers that can be used when procuring parts for manufacturing, the Solutions that are returned based on defined Part Choices take into account which Suppliers are enabled for use - the list of Approved Suppliers. This is controlled centrally through the PART PROVIDERS page (ADMIN » PART PROVIDERS) of the server's browser-based interface.

  • Pricing - presents pricing information for the currently selected solution in terms of cost per part. This information comes directly from the applicable parts database. Where available, the pricing for different quantity bands is also presented. Currency is that of the Supplier.
