A few examples of our obsolescence management projects:

  • complete analysis of a large sorting plant in order to check its producibility
  • complete analysis of a control system for large ship engines in order to identify NRND components (Not Recommended for New Designs)
  • consultancy services to build up a component databank
  • successful identification of an NRND digital temperature sensor which enabled its direct replacement by the successor. The client benefits from cost savings and improved EMC behavior. Production of the original component was discontinued following the replacement.
