COG members advise on the best measures to combat obsolescence

The increasingly shorter life cycles of products for certain consumer sectors (for smartphones and tablets as low as six to twelve months) seriously influences the availability of even the most innovative electronic components.
More and more producers of durable goods from the sectors automatization, automotive, railway, power station, medicine or military technology, which depend on a secured provision with electronic spare parts even for decades, have to cope with the fact that these parts are hardly or not at all available after a relatively short period. However, a careful and forward thinking strategy may help to minimize, or ideally even eliminate, many typical obsolescence risks.

Evertiq made the "COG-run" and talked to a few of the companies:
