Country of Origin Data now Included in SiliconExpert's Database for Millions of Components

SANTA CLARA, Calif., April, 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SiliconExpert Technologies, the leading provider of electronic component management tools, officially adds coverage of Country of Origin (COO) data to the breadth of its database. Access to this data provides more supply chain visibility and the ability to assess component risk in much more depth for SiliconExpert's customers.

SiliconExpert's addition of Country of Origin data allows customers to see which country carried out the last significant manufacturing process on a part family level. Country of Origin data enables Supply Chain managers with more insight into risk elements such as natural disasters, changing political environments, and compliance with trade restrictions. With Country of Origin knowledge, SiliconExpert provides a vital data point in assessing risk and moving towards creating proactive plans to circumstances that may arise in the supply chain. 

Quality standards, expertise in production, market availability, and labor force are a few examples of the elements that influence which country will be determined as Country of Origin for a part family. Therefore, the data associated with Country of Origin helps mitigate the risk of these factors.

"Our customers have been asking for COO data, and we listened. Our goal has always been to equip our customers with the most vital information when it comes to product risk assessment" says Mohammad Ahmad, Product Manager at SiliconExpert Technologies.
