May 4 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm EDT
Obsolescence management has evolved past the early days of reactive monitoring of discontinuation notices of parts to managing all items that comprise a system including hardware, software, raw materials, processes, and skills required to produce and maintain the system.
Defined as the activities taken by individuals or an organization to manage the obsolescence of items throughout the lifecycle, obsolescence management is practiced across many industries that require the use of items well past their normal commercial lifespans including the Aerospace, Defense, Energy including oil & gas, Medical, Rail, Automotive, and Telecommunications Industries.
