Mouser’s FORTE

Mouser’s intelligent BOM tool – FORTE –  validates part numbers, product availability, and price, and recommends alternative products to reduce design and product lifecycle risks.


FORTE evaluates the millions of daily interactions of purchasing professionals and engineers, and uses a unique relevancy engine that analyzes partial part numbers and descriptions to suggest the best options for customers.

FORTE offers expanded customization, added intelligence, and enhanced part match confidence that makes the BOM-building process faster, easier to use, and easier to share.

The  tool remembers users’ preferences, spreadsheet layouts, naming conventions, and previous product orders.

FORTE also offers legacy features like translations for all of Mouser’s supported languages, support for the most common file formats, real-time product pricing and availability, and easy purchasing directly from the BOM.

“We wanted to simplify the workflow to get the customer through the BOM task faster, ” says Mouser’s Hayne Shumate, “the new tool can match a higher percentage of parts and help customers understand the confidence and risk of each part.”
