Agile integrates to PartMiner database
Agile integrates to PartMiner Electronics database enabling customers to streamline parts research and comply with environmental regulations.
Through Agile Software Corporation agreement with PartMiner, Inc., customers can now gain access to PartMiner materials and parts information across the Agile PLM solution. This connectivity to the PartMiner electronics database enables Agile customers to locate and analyze electronic components before purchasing, thereby streamlining the product procurement process. Access to PartMiner’s database also gives Agile customers the information they need to help ensure their compliance with product design goals, including environmental directives such as the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Agile customers can now gain direct access to PartMiner's CAPS™ vendor-neutral database of electronic component information, covering over 39 million part numbers and over 1,900 manufacturers. The database provides Agile's customers with updated information on part lifecycle status and obsolescence risk analysis, alternate part information, lead-free and RoHS compliance, and part documentation from global manufacturers. PartMiner is accessible across the entire Agile PLM solution.
