Obsolescence Management: The key to the long-term availability of electronic systems

Obsolescence describes the state which occurs when an item or process is no longer available. The causes of obsolescence are, among other things, non-profitability, Innovation cycles and technological developments, market adjustments to meet customer requirements, environment: legislative requirements and standards or environmental disasters.

Therefore, a strategic obsolescence management is essential to ensure the long-term availability of the products with the required quality at a minimized cost. The ZVEI Services-in-EMS initiative has issued a brochure that shows how obsolescence is managed in the supply chain.
