Version 8.0 of CAPS Connect ES includes a new Corporate Parts List function, new Bill of Material cleansing process, and adding REACH and Low Halogen values to the Material Data display.

CAPS Connect ES provides a high degree of value to product design teams. By offering extensive component data, reporting tools, and suggestions on component replacement, CAPS delivers a high return on investment.

PartMiner WorldWide Inc. released Version 8.0 of the CAPS™ Connect ES Platform. Connect ES is a fully web-based components database solution that enables design and component engineers to build, optimize, and analyze Bill of Materials (BOMs). Connect ES integrates with Approved Vendor Lists and internal parts lists, providing a single corporate-wide data set for product lifecycle management. CAPS data is essential for Original Equipment Manufacturers or Electronic Manufacturing Services’ product teams including design and component engineers, supply chain, manufacturing, and quality assurance personnel.

Key enhancements added with the 8.0 and recent ES releases include:

  •     New CPL (Corporate Parts List) feature to easily edit parts data
  •     New BOM cleansing process saves time and money
  •     CPL custom columns included in CPL parametric searches
  •     REACH and Low Halogen values added to Material Data display results and other reports
  •     Search results from CAPS can now include Lifecycle and EOL details in addition to Parametrics
  •     One-click request to submit new parts requests to PartMiner content engineering team
  •     Export CPL in a format that easily uploads to ERP and PLM systems

Connect ES data makes new product design and ongoing manufacturing easier by providing tools such as multiple electronic component search modes (parametric, part number), BOM cleansing and validation, reporting on component lifecycles including automatic Part Watch alerts, and complete sets of component documentation such as datasheets and part change notices. Connect ES also includes information on material content, environmental compliance (REACH, RoHS), and provides electronic component replacement suggestions and cross reference results.

“CAPS Connect ES provides a high degree of value to product design teams,” said Michael Thompson, PartMiner Vice President of Worldwide CAPS Sales. “By offering extensive component data, reporting tools, and suggestions on component replacement, CAPS delivers a high return on investment.”
