To use SCRAMS, all you have to do is upload parts of your procurement data into the system, including from SAP ERP, other ERPs, and spreadsheets. SCRAMS then automatically identifies multiple kinds of supply chain anomalies in your procurement data, such as counterfeit, modified, and sub-par QA items – and also vendor and shipping anomalies. In addition, it enriches its results with public information about items, vendors, geopolitical events etc. from many public data sources, such as from counterfeit databases, social media and news. SCRAMS provides supply chain risk managers with a consolidated, detailed report that helps them focus where it matters most, so they can react to supply chain risks faster.
SCRAMS has originally been designed for analyzing IT and microelectronics purchases, but is far more widely applicable than that. In the context of microelectronics, SCRAMS can also help determine the bill of materials of circuit boards, and automatically search for circuit board and part anomalies.
