Centralized Part Information

Product development teams struggle to meet cost, time and performance goals, spending time instead on non-value-added activities such as searching for part information in disparate databases, catalogs or websites. JDA Product Sourcing centralizes part information in order to support fast, accurate pricing, procurement and parts management as well as to maximize part reuse. The solution enables rapid product changes, bill of material (BOM) collaboration and execution of shared workflows with suppliers.

How does it solve your business challenges?

Your business needs to share part and material information, as well as agree on which suppliers to leverage. JDA Product Sourcing manages this process by loading and matching external BOM and approved manufacturers list (AML) data, streamlining part identification. The solution also analyzes total material sourcing costs for one or more BOMs, comparing multiple cost sources such as purchase orders, contracts, quotes and standard costs.

What are the benefits?

  • Cost reductions
  • Improved time-to-market
  • Enhanced productivity and elimination of manual processes
  • Reduced product obsolescence

Why JDA?

JDA Product Sourcing provides you with a single solution to access part information, as well as incorporate items into the BOM. The solution aggregates information from multiple systems and normalizes it, enabling powerful parametric searching on the corporate item master, as well as reference catalogs such as external part databases.
