VPI Strategic Sourcing can assist in all stages of the supply management chain. VPI specializes in parts procurement, component logistics and shipping, kitting, technology and component analysis, electronics design evaluation, PCB design evaluation, electronic design services, and more.
We provide connections to component companies. We have relationships with many component vendors both domestically and internationally and can often source components from the original manufacturer and offer pricing that is significantly lower than other distribution channels.
Our engineering team has experience designing with a wide variety of components. This familiarity enables us to find quality parts quickly, reducing the time needed to get your product to market.
We can help analyze your prospective design. VPI offers a technology and component analysis for your product design that focuses on reliability, low cost, and design for manufacturability and testability. We can also evaluate the bill of materials for your product and recommend ways to reduce costs without sacrificing core functionality. Analysis of schematics and PCB layouts are also available.
We offer kitting services and supply chain management. VPI can be your single source for procuring and managing all components used in your product. We coordinate with individual vendors and manage shipping schedules so every component arrives when needed for final assembly in your manufacturing process.
VPI Strategic Sourcing can help with that too. Our experienced engineers can examine the component's specifications and recommend a suitable cross or replacement part. When a new variant of the part is required, we can analyze the difference between the original component and the new component and assist in changing the design in order to accommodate the new part.
