Designing is stressful enough unfortunately we now also have to worry about components constantly being out of stock or obsolete. Supplies and prices seem to change overnight and it's hard to keep up, but there is something you can do.

Altium Designer’s ActiveBOM capability includes customizable BOM checks and integrates with IHS MarkitⓇ to bring designers the most up-to-date component information. Check the status and verify all the components in your BOM before the design is sent to be manufactured. Setup part alternatives in case of last minute changes to availability or cost. Having insight into your supply chain gives you an advantage over the competition, and allows you to minimize risk.
