About this portal

As technology evolves and supply chains for components are primarily driven by consumer goods, the part and component manufacturing industry became highly dynamic and releases new, better and cheaper products day by day.

But what happens to long-field life products, which need the same components for decades (e.g. airplanes, ships)? Furthermore, if components are only available for a few years, how can systems that need to be manufactured and supported of decades manage to continue operation?

Engineers and managers must understand and plan for the life cycles of components used to produce or maintain their long-field life products and systems.  When organizations don't manage obsolescence, systems are left vulnerable to production delays, excessive maintenance downtimes, and system unavailability, all resulting in higher system sustainment costs.

This non-profit knowledge sharing portal shall help all professionals in product/project management, sustainment engineering and purchasing to understand the problematic phenomenon "Obsolescence" and to identify suitable solutions in terms of obsolescence management. This forum even enables to contact one of our experts who creates customized and innovative obsolescence management concepts and provides competent, reliable and sustainable optimization of business processes, projects and infrastructure.
