Obsolescence Management

Home 9 Obsolescence Management

Obsolescence significantly affects the cost of acquiring and optimizing equipment operations in a business. It normally occurs at all phases of system acquisition. As such, identifying the risk of obsolescence early enough makes it possible to identify and implement alternative solutions, thereby greatly minimizing the actual cost of handling obsolescence in systems when it does occur. The rate at which systems become obsolete is increasing and, with it, the availability and financial risks to equipment. A well-thought out management strategy is therefore necessary for minimizing through life costs. It is a well-established fact that a comprehensive Obsolescence Management plan can greatly reduce costs and prevent interruptions to the supply and production processes.

In cases where a critical system component fails or requires modification but the replacement part can no longer be obtained from the original manufacturer or other authorized dealers, a problem occurs that can often spell disaster for the entire production process. Implementation of alternative solutions such redesign may prove to be a very expensive option.
