By definition, obsolescence is a problem that is unavoidably encountered by industries that utilize durable systems, tools, and components. Technology advancements, disruptions in the supply chain, and environmental regulations are just a few of the factors that can cause obsolescence. At QVISE, we know the crucial part that risk management for obsolescence plays in ensuring system success over the long term. We offer our clients a comprehensive Obsolescence Management (OM) program. As a result, providing them with practical solutions to counter or lessen the impact of product obsolescence.
Obsolescence Management (OM) Program
QVISE's Obsolescence Management (OM) program identifies, manages, and mitigates the associated risks. To conduct Configuration Management (CM), we follow industry standards, such as MIL-STD-973, MIL-HDBK-61B, and SAE-EIA649C. We perform Configuration Management (CM) using the QVISE ILS CAMS (Computer-Aided Management System) program which is based on the American handbook for ESWBS (Expanded Ship Work Breakdown Structure) as an identifier for Configuration Items (CI) and performs indenturing based on Volume II of the same ESWBS Handbook. By doing so, we can keep the platforms' configurations in their as-built and as-maintained states and guarantee full traceability.
With its controlled obsolescence program, QVISE can address obsolescence risks without jeopardizing system performance. We collaborate closely with clients to create a unique plan that ensures the gradual replacement of outdated parts, lowers costs, reduces downtime, and maintains system effectiveness. Additionally, we offer regular updates on the condition of the components to guarantee prompt replacements with the least possible impact on the operation of the system. Customers can rest easy knowing that their systems will continue to perform at their best while addressing the challenges of obsolescence thanks to our controlled obsolescence program.
QVISE's Obsolescence Management (OM) program is comprehensive and also includes parts Obsolescence Management (OM), which involves identifying and managing obsolete parts. To ensure effective management, we maintain a comprehensive database of obsolete parts and actively monitor market trends to identify potential risks of parts obsolescence. Our experienced team offers effective solutions to minimize the impact of parts obsolescence, including, finding suitable replacements or designing new components where necessary. We work closely with our clients to ensure they have the necessary information and resources to make informed decisions that minimize the impact of parts obsolescence on their systems.
QVISE has a proven track record of successfully executing Obsolescence Management (OM) projects across industries. One such project involved developing an expanded ship work breakdown structure (ESWBS) for a naval client, created using the American handbook. The ESWBS allowed the customer to manage their platform's configuration effectively. We also developed a comprehensive Obsolescence Management (OM) plan for a client in the aerospace industry, to help mitigate obsolescence risk and ensure the long-term performance of their systems.
Furthermore, their participation in developing a thorough Obsolescence Management (OM) strategy for an aerospace customer exemplifies their dedication to reducing obsolescence risks and guaranteeing long-term system performance. As previously noted, this strategy had components like obsolescence identification, risk assessment, mitigation methods, supply chain coordination, and documentation management. QVISE has demonstrated its capacity to offer end-to-end Obsolescence Management (OM) services, including analysis, planning, execution, and monitoring, by completing these projects. Our expertise in various industries shows that they have a thorough awareness of the obsolescence problems unique to various businesses and the capacity to develop solutions accordingly.
