The procedure of determining the presence of conflict minerals in products sold and distributed in commerce is complicated. Given the massive network of suppliers and distributors, supply chains can become an intricate web that grows tougher to manage the more complex a product is. Businesses may turn to consultants, but often the solutions they find are not scalable or reasonable, especially for large numbers of products and materials

@Hash: Just a thought but while reading the post I thought the main cause would be the integration issues.

@electrnx: Yes you are right on track. What I feel is that the government should look into more positive factors and open the door for more vendors.

The governments regulation on conflict materials could give a chance to few new softwares that might help the OEMs to handle this correctly. Hopefully bigger manufacturers should announce their sources openly to avoid the time spent by various companies.

@nimantha.d: Yes indeed, things will happen only after using it for some time. This will consume some time for sure but you cannot complain

@Douglas: Yes true, there will be bugs when you start using something new. From that only you will be able to identify how to improve the system. Without using you cannot figure out the bugs.

@ehcaneda... Yes, IHS is well equipped for managing CM data gathering and so is GreenSoft Technologies. They do all the REACH & RoHS regs too. Like any new process, there will be early bugs to iron out, and what will begin as a rough and tedious process, will be smoothed out and simplified over time. You would think Tantalum cap manufacturers would be the first out of the starting gate since their entire business is tantalum dependent. We should be looking for advanced press releases from KOA, AVX, and others that will establish them in their customer's eyes as being proactive and conscientious about CM matters.
