In certain industries, typically those involved with electronic assemblies, the price and availability of components can vary widely. It is therefore common practice when planning a new project to send a number of vendors a list of the components required for them to quote their current pricing and delivery details.


This list is often known as a quotation assembly.  The quotation request tool allows such a list of components to be generated for a batch of a given assembly:

Stock on shelf or stock available figures can be used to determine items that are short.  A PDF of the quotation request can be generated and sent to the vendor as required:

Herschel can also save the list as a CSV file or Excel spreadsheet.
