The right C-parts range for you
The basis for your success in C-parts management is having a partner with the proper range. We offer more than 140,000 items that we keep in stock in our warehouses worldwide.
C-parts usually account for a large quantity of all part numbers in a bill of material. They are details such as metal or plastic fasteners (e.g., screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, pins, washers), as well as other small metal, rubber or plastic parts such as cables, springs, and electronic fasteners. And more.
Volume vs value
C-parts are unique in that the purchase price is only a tiny part of the total cost of a component, often as little as 20%. The remaining 80% of the total cost is made up of indirect costs in the form of:
Forecasting, planning, and ordering
Incoming goods handling and inspection
Warehousing, stock taking, and stock control
Internal transports and linefeed
Freight, especially express freight
Capital costs, scrap, and obsolescence
Supplier sourcing, evaluation, and verification
Preventive quality measures, such as SQA, and corrective quality measures (scrap, rebuild)
Indirect quality costs such as line stops, replanning, and badwill
