Obsolescence

Design-in as you mean to go on

We can cross reference obsolete parts, offer second source ahead of any EOL notices, look at repackaging parts to supply drop-in replacements or suggest products to design in from the front end that are unlikely to go obsolete.

Help Plan for the Future

Astute Electronics’ expertise in proactive obsolescence management begins at the design and product definition phases.

They understand that component selection during development is crucial to prevent premature product redesigns and expensive requalification.

By providing consultation during these initial phases, Astute helps customers plan for long-term component supply, essential for products with extended development, production, and after-sale support cycles.

This foresight is particularly crucial in industries like defence, aerospace, energy, and industrial controls, where the product lifecycle can span decades.

Find Alternatives for Parts

Understanding and modelling the costs and risks associated with obsolescence is a key area where Astute excels.

They help businesses anticipate and prepare for product refreshes or redesigns that may be necessitated by component obsolescence.

Their expertise aids in finding cost-effective and compatible alternative parts, minimising disruptions, and ensuring continuity in production and service.

Astute’s approach helps businesses account for the capital locked in long-term component sourcing.

Design-in Right First Time

Astute focuses on preventative planning, helping to reduce or eliminate the costs and risks associated with the unexpected obsolescence of even the smallest components.

By paying attention to detail and analysing costs on a line-by-line basis, Astute ensures that the initial design integrates the most reliable and long-lasting components, reducing the likelihood of future obsolescence issues.

This meticulous approach in the design phase helps avoid costly program disruptions and maintains the integrity of the production process
