The term “Obsolescence” covers the situation where a manufacturer no longer considers it economic enough to continue manufacturing a component.
- Because of Obsolescence, equipment is no longer available or can´t be repaired economically
- There is no equivalent replacement without increased expenditure
- Obsolescence concerns materials, components, processes and software. It can occur in all parts of the life cycle of components: development, design, production and services
- It affects components which are required to be maintained for long periods of time which can be 10, 20, 30 or more years.
Reasons for Obsolescence
- Technological progress – the innovation, becomes shorter and faster
- Economic reasons
- Changes in the standardization -“old” standards are no longer available and are no longer maintained
- Legislation changes e.g. concerning asbestos, cadmium and lead tin solder (RoHS)
- The original manufacturer is no longer in business
- The processes, tools and knowledge for the maintenance, update or improvement of the software are no longer available.
Why Is The Obsolescence Industry Growing?
Obsolescence is not a new phenomenon. Old technology has always been replaced by new one. But: Today technology changes faster than ever since the speed is determined by the continually changing IT, telecommunication and consumer electronics industry.
