Design for Obsolescence
At Relchron we always try to address the challenges of obsolescence as early as possible in the design stage, but at any stage of engagement by using a strategic approach, analysing, forecasting and planning, we can help to optimise the life cycle of your product.
Our engineers have the tools to break down bills of materials to component level, filtering out low risk components to assess the risk for the remaining items. This allows the engineer to weigh up the likelihood of component obsolescence against the impact on product end performance. Another factor to consider in product design relates to field serviceability as it is important that assembled products can be repaired, upgraded or modified with ease either in the field or when returned.
