Transforming Obsolete Components into Available Parts

Taking on Obsolescence

Obsolescence management represents a dynamic, strategic challenge in electronics manufacturing. High-reliability manufacturers must support products for many years, despite shortening component lifetimes. Market forces such as component supplier mergers and government directives add complexity to the challenge. Moreover, obsolescence management efforts also must take into account factors like personnel, software, finished goods and processes.
