- Form EMS and PCBA bid packages in a supplier-independent and easy-to-understand format.
- Gather both assembly and BOM-based material pricing along with possible alternates in order to evaluate the material cost, labor, overhead, and markup pricing matrix.
- Build relationships with EMS and PCBA suppliers instead of conducting pricing exercises to drive successful negotiations and lead sustainable year over year price reductions.
Corcentric’s direct material strategic sourcing experts gather not only price points for the completed assembly, but also the labor, individual component pricing, and alternate component pricing which can be used to match manufacturing region, core capabilities, and evaluate possible savings opportunities to drive DFM (design for manufacturability) and purchase price variance (PPV) analysis and value analysis/value engineering (VA/VE) programs.
