The right resources at the right time!

Many electronic parts have life cycles that are shorter than the life cycle of the product they are a component of. Life cycle mismatches caused by the obsolescence of electronic parts can result in high sustainment costs for long life systems. In particular, avionics and military systems often encounter part obsolescence problems before being fielded and nearly always experience part obsolescence problems during their field life. Successful obsolescence management strategies and plans should be analyzed before taking any decision for action as the goal is to reduce systems’ life cycle costs by minimizing the time needed to resolve obsolescence cases.

Methods of detailed time of obsolescence elimination studies include:

  • Analysis of processing time to eliminate Obsolescence
  • Classification of productive, non-value-added (system or process requirements) and basic available time
  • Identification of causes for basic available time
  • Case analysis of the reasons for non-value-added time

The result of a detailed cost study measures the Key Performance Indicators “Target-Actual-Time” and “Derived Target-Actual-Costs” including: 

  • Illustration of existing problems
  • Objectification
  • Demonstration of consequences of the problems
