Offering solutions to your Obsolescence Issues

Proactive Obsolescence

The Challenge: Do you experience problems when critical items are no longer available due to obsolescence, but only find out when it is too late?

Our Solution

Proactive monitoring of individual components’ availability status on a regular basis.

CMCA(UK)’s solutions range from simple monitoring of your critical components with email alerts, Product Change Notices (PCN)’s, right through to a customer-owned bespoke database. This can simply be a list of disassociated parts, or it can contain full equipment structure indentation with a customer-updatable Obsolescence Solution Management section. This section can include options such as “Design Out”, “Life-Time Buy” and also a materials data section which could include Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) information and in-house stock levels.

We are not only limited to electronic components, although obviously they form a large percentage of potential problem items. We cover all types of commodities, including electro-mechanical, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, and drilling along with things like oils, petroleums and chemicals. We have even been asked to monitor an individual who supplies a key service to an organisation.
