Good common platform

CPL is a good common platform for designers, purchase managers and the contract manufacturers.

It will restrain the designers from using out of circulation parts in their design, making the job of purchase easier.

Who will own and maintain such libraries is a question . Component manufacturers are like to misuse this facility by monopolising such libraries by making other manufacturers part vanish from such libraries .

@prabhakar: Good point but can't we  apply some strict rules to prevent it from misusing ?

Prabhakar,

A Very Brilliant and simple way of Putting this issue in the right perspective.

As they say-Who Will Bell this Cat?

If you start seeing any one Manufacturer monopolize these libraries it quite defeats the Purpose of the CPL.

Does'nt it?

Nimantha,

There is a clear limit to how many rules one can apply.

It would be pointless if the Industry was'nt Self-policing over the Long-run so to speak.

Regulators can only do so much here.
