The Future of Obsolescence Management community is powered by individuals and organizations that care about the challenges of managing obsolescence in your supply chain. The best way to tackle these growing demands in our market is through collaboration and sharing ideas. This community is intended to be an international thought leadership network sharing experiences, best practices, and ideas to shape a positive Future of Obsolescence Management.
An international network
The Future of Obsolescence Management community connects people with problems to people with answers. It’s an avenue for exposing you to different ways of thinking about common sourcing obstacles, with solutions nuanced by experience, and cultural approaches to problem solving.
Future of Obsolescence Management community members bring proven, practical solutions that bridge your production expertise and your supply chain management capabilities. No one entity can be expert in everything, but a community can help close gaps in skills, as well as supply chains.
A free resource
The only requirement to joining the Future of Obsolescence Management community is a commitment to improving component sourcing, testing, and certification.

Taking on obsolescence and evolving product lifecycles
Product lifecycles are growing shorter and shorter, yet high-reliability manufacturers must support products for many years. 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. Joining forces is critical to coping with obsolescence management. It’s why we’ve developed the Future of Obsolescence Management, and why the combination of Converge and Arrow is such an effective resource for your enterprise.
After four years, FOM will return this September. Join us in Boston, MA for FOM2023.
