New Momentum, a vendor of supply-chain risk-management software for companies that use electronic components in their products, has launched the Constrained Parts Finder. The application provides visibility into the global, open market for electronic parts, helping companies to avoid production shutdowns and missed peak-season sales due to parts shortages, the company said. The Constrained Parts Finder is offered under a hosted, software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, employing the latest Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 as well as data-management standards to acquire content across a broad mix of global market sources. To find strategic parts that have become constrained, a company inputs the specific parts numbers, which are matched with worldwide parametric data and gathered within the New Momentum database to show availability of parts. Within minutes, New Momentum said, users can find authentic, compliant and alternative parts without paying premium prices. Information includes seller, geographic location, price, and quantity, alternatives and compliance status.
