Extending the lifetime of capital goods by tackling obsolescence of electronic assemblies An innovative and cost-effective strategy



Obsolescence of electronic assemblies has become a significant problem especially in capital goods e.g. trains, planes, industrial facilities and commercial vehicles. Tackling obsolescence ensures an extended lifetime of these capital goods. Therefore, strategies for the after-series availability have to be developed. One possible solution is described in the obsolescence management application guide DIN EN 62402. Nevertheless, a consistent obsolescence management is indeed a very resource intense process and no practicable solution for small and medium sized enterprises (SME). Within the research project “Electronic after-series availability” an innovative and cost-effective strategy is developed.
