• Obsolescence Management

    Driven by continuously accelerating technological change, components and systems are developed and introduced to the market at an increasing speed. This results in a dramatic life cycle decrease of components and systems, as well as their shortened availability on the market. A growing sector is created, in which the life cycle of the individual products is no longer aligned with the life cycle of the necessary components.

    If a component, module, material, tool, software, process or standard, that is required for the manufacturing or maintenance of a company’s own product, is no longer available, cost intensive supply bottlenecks arise. This is known as obsolescence, whereby active and proactive management is constantly gaining significance in order to reduce and prevent from unplanned costs and expenses.
