PAC - Part Attribute Characterization

Part Attribute Characterization (PAC) is a software and engineering driven service that delivers reliable, structured bill-of-material information about the parts, materials and manufacturing processes—including Outside Special Processes (OSPs)—that go into your products, equipment, or weapons systems.

Is Bad Data Affecting Your Supply Chain?
PAC Will Put Your Data In Order

Cost

Are you paying too much for parts because you don’t understand the raw materials that go into them?

Consistency

Do your sub-tier suppliers use different naming conventions for the same parts and materials?

Accuracy

Do you have accurate data on all the parts and materials that go into your products, such as prices, sources, dependencies?

Data Structure

Is unstructured data preventing you from generating actionable reports and leveraging AI or blockchain?

Bad Data Costs You Money

Manufacturers with a multi-tier supply chain need a clear understanding of the raw materials and parts that go into their products. Material-input costs make up 30% to 60% of your part/product costs. Companies that can’t document where and at what price materials are purchased are probably paying more than they should. For a global manufacturer, that could represent a significant competitive disadvantage.

How Does PAC
Work?

Optimizing any manufacturing supply chain is virtually impossible without first obtaining reliable, structured information. Comprehensive supply chain visibility starts with what we call ‘the extended bill of materials.’ PAC (or Part Attribute Characterization) is a software and engineering driven service that delivers reliable, structured information about the raw materials and processes that go into your parts irrespective of where parts are made. Information is derived directly from engineering drawings and other technical data you already have. Bonus: you don’t have to ask your suppliers for it. In short, PAC brings harmony to the unstructured data that currently resides across disparate systems at multiple locations in your extended supply chain. PAC enables supply chain optimization and the digital transformation you have been waiting for.
