Avoid manufacturing supply chain disruption with a BOM Scrub from Agile Electronics:

Agile Electronics, specialists in supply chain solutions and turnkey manufacturing, offers their customers a Bill-of-Materials Scan (BOM Scrub) to reduce the risk or manufacturing disruptions caused by any inconsistencies, errors, or potential shortages by ensuring the specified part numbers are correct and procurable.


A BOM Scrub is a vital process for contract manufacturers (CEMs) and is essential for lean front-end processing. The process offers buyers reassurance that every component listed in the BOM is correct, authentic and available, avoiding manufacturing delays if a component must be reordered due to an incorrect part number, on short supply or allocation.



The Agile Electronics BOM Scrub provides their customers with:

  • Life cycle report for each component.
  • Quantities available through franchised distribution.
  • Cross reference and alternatives if required.
  • Ensuring correct manufacturers part number have been used.
  • Commodity codes and Chief Operation Officer (COO) data.
  • RoHS and REACH data.
  • Market lead time.
  • Last Time Buy (LTB) data.
