ELECTRONIC COMPONENT MARKET INTELLIGENCE

Lytica brings visibility to supply chain risk and cost – fast.

Modern electronic products such as PCs, communications servers and automobiles contain thousands of commercially available electronic components. Lytica’s statistical and analytical artificial intelligence (A.I.) tools sift through millions of these components to spot pricing anomalies and supply risks for our clients.

Until Lytica’s analytic tools, commercial e-component cost benchmarking was nearly impossible. Our tools enable significant cost reduction through A.I. enabled business practices. We help improve our clients’ competitiveness productivity and supply chain vulnerability.

Join the leaders of industry in modernizing your sourcing, component management and negotiation processes through Lytica’s transformational applications.

BRADLEY’S LAW:
A CUSTOMER PROVEN HYPOTHESIS

A company should expect to pay for a specific electronic device a price commensurate with their Competitiveness within that particular commodity. This Competitiveness is the measure of how the supply chain sees the company.

Ken Bradley, Founder & CTO, Lytica Inc.

PRICE PREDICTION USING BRADLEY’S LAW

Lytica’s approach to price prediction quantifies competitiveness and uses it as proxy for the overabundance of variables that impact your component pricing. Too many variables and unknowns make traditional approaches to cost estimation error prone and unrealistic. Customers have proven time and time again that Lytica’s prediction approach delivers high ROI with minimal effort compared to traditional techniques.
