The Rosettanet consortium, which is currently piloting ecommerce standards for IT supply chain, is expanding its remit to cover the electronic components (EC) industry.
As expected (see VNU Newswire, 11 June, 1999), the organisation now plans to develop standard partner interface processes (PIPs) to enable different supply chain applications in the electronic components sector to communicate with each other.
It has also set up an EC Managing Board, which currently includes 23 members such as Arrow Electronics, Cisco Systems, Texas Instruments and Motorola. This will sit alongside the existing IT Managing Board and the two will fall under the umbrella of a new Executive Board, which will include representatives from both groups.
Fadi Chehade, Rosettanet's chief executive, who will act as chairman of the Executive Board, said: "Together, the IT and EC industries represent an interactive, interdependent supply chain, where the line between one and the other is blurred. This supply chain interdependency was the fuel that drove the EC industry to embrace the initiative."
As a result, members of the EC Managing Board have agreed to support the Rosettanet Project Methodology, expand its Dictionary to include values for passive and active components and connectors and promised to adopt as many PIPs as possible.
