The Component Obsolescence Group was founded in 1997 in Great Britain. Component Obsolescence Group (COG) is a special interest group of like-minded professionals, from all levels of the supply chain and across all industries and relevant government agencies, concerned with addressing and mitigating the effects of obsolescence.
