CCE Mobile provides instantaneous electronic component costing based on current
market prices and recommends second source alternatives to assist electronic product
designers, component engineers, product line managers and purchasing professionals
(including those within Contract Manufacturers/EMS Providers). Companies do not
release confidential information such as price or volume when they use CCE Mobile;
they only need to input the Manufacturerʼs Part Number (MPN). The cost estimation
process uses Lyticaʼs Freebenchmarking.com database as a reference from which
statistical estimations are made. This database is the largest independent database of
current electronic component prices in the world. Analysis is based totally on market
data; Lytica is not a component supplier and works independently of all suppliers.
How does it work?
A manufacturing part number (MPN) is entered and results are displayed showing
pricing and up to 5 sourcing alternatives. Component prices are displayed as average,
market leading and fair market value (based on competitiveness*) in $USD for your
company. Alternate sources for the component listed are ones that have a high
probability of being drop in replacements.

* What is competitiveness?
Competitiveness is a ranking of purchasing effectiveness where 100% represents
market leading and 50% is average. A company at the 70th percentile would have 29%
of companies buying at prices better than theirs and 70% buying at prices higher, if
others bought the same materials at the same annual volumes. By setting
competitiveness to a level appropriate for your company, you will see the market value
price your company should pay.
