Proactive obsolescence management is essential to maintain ongoing production schedules.
At APC Locator we draw on our extensive design-in and product expertise along with our established network of trusted vendors and component platforms to ensure that end-of-life notifications, last time buy dates and obsolete components can be managed to reduce disruption to production schedules.
Our obsolescence management services include:
- Using global electronics component platforms for obsolescence management we will analyse your bill of materials to identify potential end of life and obsolete components
- Once identified, we will manage last time buy and last time ship orders, including the management of buffer stocks and schedules
- Using our long-established, trusted network of suppliers and agents we can source obsolete components from our preferred procurement routes, including testing of components where necessary
Sometimes sourcing additional stocks of a specific component is not possible. In these instances we work with you to regularly review your requirements and specify and source alternative products.
