    Hello, I am wondering what tools are used by all the people out there for BOM and parts management.

    I am trying to setup some software that will help a team of about 5 to 8 engineers that will be developing boards. It would be nice if the libraries for the parts can be created once and referenced by everyone. This means that everyone is using a common name for the parts in the library. While excel is a good enough starting point, the file gets corrupted very easily just with 5 people. There is also no way to do good BOM management in excel.

    What other tools are in use for this application?

    Parts & Vendors was my first go to choice too, but the developers are apparently retiring and closing shop. Are there other alternatives that people have found?

    I'm sorry to hear that. It still might be a good choice even without ongoing development and support if the price was right. Who knows they might even make it open source.
