Materials Management

You can work with SMS on either a parts consignment basis or a complete turnkey parts sourcing arrangement… or a mix of both. Our expertise is supported by:

  • Master contracts with major suppliers, Avnet, Arrow, Memec, TTI and Future, that provide powerful leverage necessary to obtain hard-to-get parts. We link electronically with them to create a JIT inventory system.
  • Senior buyers with multi-year experience managed by a seasoned purchasing manager with over 25 years of experience
  • ERP system
  • Automated material quoting to quickly generate accurate quotes
  • Manufacturing floor control through a bar code-based WIP system
  • FIFO inventory system to minimize obsolete parts
  • Stockroom daily “cycle count” to maintain accuracy
  • Flexible tape and reel capabilities available for specific package-size semiconductors
