One of the important factors to determine the QCD of electronic equipment is a process of selecting and purchasing electronic components.
RINS utilizes its Parts Certification and Purchasing System that has been built up in the Ricoh Group, and selects and procures worldwide electronic components with the best QCD.
The components used for design, prototype and mass production are certified and their data is registered and updated in real time. As a Ricoh Group company, RICOH Industrial Solutions Inc. takes advantage of bulk buying to allow a low price setting, and also has a network system that can keep track of information on discontinued parts, hazardous substance in parts, etc. After the layout is designed, order and procurement of PWB or other electronic components are started by a dozen certified manufacturers in Japan and China, based on the data of this system.
