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.
RAC SMART Tool (DMSMS)
