Material Procurement / Traceability

SPECTRUM provides consignment material or turnkey solutions to our customers.  Sourcing QML/QPL parts is routine.  Flowdowns to our vendors often include ITAR, Lot/Date Code Traceability, FAR clauses, and Conflict Minerals.

Fishbowl MRPS is used to track and control material throughout the purchasing, receiving, and production processes.  Receiving material may include 100% inspection or the use of a sampling plan.  Material traceability is routinely provided for our military and aerospace customers.

SPECTRUM participates in GIDEP for failure experience data, parts obsolescence issues, and non-conforming parts notifications.  A proactive counterfeit parts identification program is in place.
