We develop, implement and digitise applicable solutions, processes and applications for your perfect obsolescence, discontinuation, configuration, change, risk and life cycle management.

Obsolescence Management OM

Discontinued! – Now What?

Secured spare parts supply?

No longer procurable?

Who takes care of that?


Costly supply bottlenecks arise when a component, material, tool, process, assembly, software or standard necessary for the production or repair of a company‘s own product is no longer available from the manufacturer. This is known as ‘obsolescence‘. That is why it is becoming increasingly important to practice active management to reduce or completely avoid unplanned costs.

Your Benefits

Discontinuation and obsolescence cases occur in all sectors of high investment goods (capital goods, infrastructure, consumer durables, consumables and software products) Handled correctly, reactive, proactive and strategic obsolescence management is used to reduce or avoid production or service loss over the entire life cycle. This must also be considered when extending the planned useful life of equipment, machinery or means of production.

Obsolescence Management (OM) Portal

The Obsolescence Management Portal allows all rail operators, as well as national and regional transport companies to obtain information on the topics of obsolescence management and spare parts supply together with all registered members, and to exchange vehicle-specific information.

Acute obsolescence cases and supply problems are published and discussed within the portal community. Members cooperate to develop a solution or provide relevant problem-solving approaches.

You will have unrestricted access to all information published on this portal on the subject of obsolescence in railways.

SMART - Supportability Management Assessment Report Tool - from RAC is an intelligent and effective software that supports all aspects of long-term development, supply and maintenance phases:

  • Consolidates multiple internal & external data sources
  • Analysis and avoidance of unnecessary costs
  • Detailed availability forecasts (incl. COTS components)
  • Integrated case management optimizes solution-finding processes

Applied obsolescence management processes increase productivity and offer optimized solution finding processes. These reduce costs for obsolescence removal (reactive approach) and obsolescence avoidance (proactive approach). Plan the entire lifecycle of your (sub)systems in a strategic approach.
