|* Electronic Supply Chain Solution Inc "Evidence Based Protocols" to Combat Counterfeits|
Despite the substantial prevalence and adverse
consequences of counterfeiting, the knowledge
related to preventing these problems, is neither
widely available nor promoted in the electronics
industry. Given the financial restrictions facing
companies today, guidance is needed to direct the
limited available resources toward the protection of
a quality management system that has a proven
effectiveness. To support this effort, ESCS utilizes
evidence based protocols that mitigate the risk to
aid in the prevention of counterfeit components in
the supply chain. Many companies restriction of
added suppliers has been proven counter productive
and does not address the real need to review the
whole current AVL.
ESCS performs supplier reviews. The purpose of these is to highlight prevention and early intervention that has a demonstrated proven effectiveness. ESCS identifies the scope of each supplier i.e.: only relays or only connectors and then evaluates not only their on-time track record but also their practices, or quality certifications such as AS9120 in the case of an aerospace electronic component distributor which would lay the framework of a valued supplier. ESCS also provides a comprehensive annual review of the suppliers total performance with evidence based metrics kept during the year. This serves as empirical evidence of the need to retain or discard each supplier and identifies any short comings or demanded areas of improvement in order for them to remain on the ESCS AVL (approved vendor list)
As an independent we have a broader vision of where the world inventory is coming from and can safeguard companies from the pitfalls of dealing with high-risk individuals. Our current evidence base protocols provide direction for our customers regarding counterfeit product prevention through early intervention services. This information can be useful when standard channels or practices are not available or effective.
Large prime military companies are looking towards companies like ESCS that have focused their efforts on the education and preventive measures that manufactures need to take. ESCS is paving the future directions for companies as they try to combat counterfeits in their supply chain.
This year ESCS introduced http://www.icphotosynth.com/ technology. The ICphotosynth links text, data sheets and photographs of our inventory as an individual web page incorporating the image and information of the exact part and date code that will arrive on your dock at 9:00am. This service was added to the very successful CLICKnGO launch pad portal for buyers and engineers. ESCS was the third U.S. electronic distributor to become certified to the Aerospace AS9120 quality standard. By completing its fourth annual aerospace AS9120 audit with a 98.9%, ESCS continues to prove they are a quality advocate. ESCS is also part of the CACP “Collation Against Counterfeiters and Piracy.” ESCS shares valuable information from the CACP and members of the U.S. Chamber of Congress. ESCS supplies information to its customers upon request and maintains http://www.combatcounterfeits.com/ which provides everyone free information to safeguard your supply chain.

ESCS consultative services are provided as a free service. To learn how you can use “Evidence-Based Practices for Preventing Counterfeits,”
|* 2007 ESCS Introduces the ICphotosynth|
experience begins with a visit to
At first glance they may seem to be nothing more
than a collection of digital photos. They are
actually images captured by our AS9120 quality
certified inspection team. Each photo is taken under
a microscope and processed by our staff in order to
highlight valuable distinctive features such as;
part numbers, mfg logos, date codes, lot codes, or
any special part markings (i.e. test dots). Photos
that have small text or markings that wrap around
the part are taken in a series that gives you a
virtual 3D view of the entire part. Every date code
is photographed separately to meet the requirements
necessary to document split lot traceability as part
of our AS9120 certification. The ICphotosynth offers
benefits you will come to demand and rely on, and
are only available at Electronic Supply Chain
Imagine being able to request a photo of the product you purchased before it arrives! At ESCS you can! The ICphotosynth shows you the exact component in our inventory that will be on your dock tomorrow. ICphotosynth user friendly interface provides easy access for exploring a collection of photos in the ESCS inventory. Not all inventory at ESCS is displayed. Many parts been procured and tested to a customer drawing, and are earmarked for their future orders. All product at ESCS either comes with a factory C of C, or an MFG franchised distributor. Product that is procured and that does not have this tractability is sent out for testing. At ESCS all products received, even if it leaves the same day, is photographed. If we sourced the product specifically for you the photos will always be available upon your request. This service can aid in product liability, and is only available to OEM’s & CM’s as we don’t sell to brokers!
Navigate photos in the ICphotosynth & get Data Sheets as well.
ICphotosynth not only provides photos, but it also has an impressive feature which provides the ability to type in all or part of a component part number, and to navigate to the exact or similar part with a different value. This is great for teaching, or for knowing what a typical part looks like. Whether it's ICphotosynth collection of hundreds of photos, the ability to zoom in on the leads, or small part markings ESCS has made it simple to shop for quality components. You can search our Google image page by typing in the part number you need, and the ICphotosynth will then appear for you to share or save the image for later viewing. Need a Data Sheet to send along? Request millions of data sheets from the same page!
The ESCS ICphotosynth Technology
The ICphotosynth links both text and photographs into a individual web page incorporating the image and information. The content will evolve and change over time. Who can say where the future will take us? The ESCS ICphotosynth started out as an idea to create a web page for every part we owned, and now every part we have sold! We are excited about the possibilities, and would like to hear you ideas and/or suggestions.
This technology is provided by the same company that invented the CLICKnGO launch pad portal for buyers and engineers. ESCS was the third U.S. electronic distributor to become certified to the Aerospace AS9120 quality standard. And now after the fourth annual independent aerospace audit, ESCS continues to prove they are a quality advocate. ESCS is part of the CACP “Collation Against Counterfeiters and Piracy.” ESCS receives valuable information from the CACP and members of the U.S. Chamber of Congress. They supply information to its customers upon request so they can Combat Counterfeits. ESCS also maintains a link www.combatcounterfeits.com which

|* ESCS CLICK-n-GO LAUNCH PAD - Great tool for Contact Manufacturers|
|Electronic Supply Chain Solutions CLICK-n-GO Launch Pad seen as a tremendous advantage to Contract Manufacturers, We have seen a surge in traffic since our launch of the CLICK-n-GO in Dec. 2005. Most seems to be from contact manufacturers who purchase by customer which requires them to be an authority on where to locate all the required components for a build. The CLICK-n-GO launch Pad empowers the buyers with the direct links to the manufacturers of a particular commodity saving time and money when sourcing product that may not be on a contract. One buyer recently described it as "My favorites on steroids"|

|* ESCS 3rd Quarter Heats Up|
The 3rd quarter at Electronic Supply Chain Solutions heats up as ESCS completes it's annual Aerospace 9120 quality audit and publishes the ESCS CLICK-n-GO launch Pad in Electronic Supply & Manufacturing Magazine. "There is not a day that goes by that a company or buyer does not call us to complement us on our commitment to quality or the benefit that they have received by utilizing our website says ESCS President Matthew Heaphy. We believe in providing our customers with the information needed for sound business decisions. It has been the cornerstone of our many successes. Our ad in Electronic Supply & Manufacturing Magazine will provide more buyers with this valuable tool."
ESCS was independently certified to the Aerospace9120 & ISO 9001-2000 Quality standard for over a year now and are shocked to find that only a small handful of electronic component distributors have attempted to measure up to this standard that NASA and others have stated as a must. ESCS is a quality advocate. Look at our quality pages to learn the benefits of a quality management system.
