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.
