Industry Leading Sourcing Capabilities

Sourcing

SDI has the market reach that is essential to quickly resolve electronic component shortages. With established original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and electronics manufacturing services (EMS) relationships, we help our customers manage constrained supply situations by sourcing allocated, obsolete, and end-of-life electronic components. SDI’s sourcing process brings many global assets that represent the best choice for a sourcing partner. With our global reach, diverse product offering and world-class quality inspection process, Scientific Devices represents the leading choice for a strategic sourcing partner.

Bonded Inventory

SDI has a bonded inventory program allowing customers to place blanket purchase orders and release product as required knowing it is in stock and ready to ship anytime. SDI monitors customer requirements, and needs, to ensure that product is in stock when required.

Bill of Material Analysis

SDI has the capability of analyzing a customer’s Bill of Material in order to provide them with a comprehensive summary which would include pricing, availability, lead-time and alternatives. Scientific Devices reduces the number of vendors you work with when completing a bill of materials (BOM). In cooperation with other affiliated companies, SDI can help you gain access to the entire BOM through one vendor.

Obsolescence Services

Obsolescence management represents a strategic challenge in electronics manufacturing. Manufacturers must support products for many years, despite shortening component lifetimes. Has your supply chain faced increasing obsolescence challenges? SDI, in collaboration with our leading industrial partners can help you resolve the critical challenges that you may be facing.

Excess Inventory Management

SDI helps OEMs and CMs manage their excess inventory. We oversee the logistics of a customer’s excess by holding inventory on consignment or with our revenue sharing model. SDI can help you realize a monetary value from your non-moving inventory.

Quality

Scientific Devices is committed to maintaining quality standards that meet or exceed industry standards. Full traceability from all suppliers and manufacturer is a priority. SDI has partnered with test facilities in North America and China enabling SDI to offer reliable fit, form and function warranty on every product that leaves our warehouse.
