Laura A. Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC (http://www.fuentek.com), has announced that NASA’s Kennedy Space Center has selected Fuentek to find prospective licensees for the intellectual property rights to PrimeSupplier, a supply chain analysis tool that forecasts economic influences on product and supplier viability. By bringing together both financial and programmatic data, PrimeSupplier analyzes which suppliers are most, or least, likely to fail based on the data available and comparisons to industry benchmarks, allowing manufacturing organizations to minimize their own risk by proactively managing risk throughout their supplier base. Fuentek will help Kennedy seek supply chain management, enterprise resource planning, and/or systems integration partners interested in commercializing the PrimeSupplier technology.

Initially developed for NASA Shuttle Program transition activities, PrimeSupplier has been used by NASA to view early indicators of supplier and product line stability. The software analyzes causes and effects of supply chain events with parameters based on a supplier’s financial liquidity, quality performance and other programmatic data. The result is a comprehensive picture of schedule impact and funding risks from supplier or part obsolescence.
