What is Multi-Sourcing?

There may be nothing worse than finishing a design, getting it fully tested and ready for release only to find out some of the parts used cannot be ordered, leaving you scrambling to find suitable replacement parts to get the design into production. This all-too common issue can be prevented by identifying and specifying multiple sources for parts upfront, giving you assurance the parts you have chosen can be ordered in a timeline and quantity that will be needed during production.
