Radwell can help your business proactively manage obsolescence by improving reliability, managing risks and preventing machine-down situations. The product life cycle of a technical system is often longer than the availability of spare parts. Everyday manufacturers around the world discontinue products, so end of life is announced and with it support ceases and the risk of a defective component increases. By planning for obsolescence we can help you create a long term strategy that includes support, replacement parts and repairs. Our comprehensive analytical reports provide a real time view of the inventory of automation assets at your plant and their value. Through graphical representations of data we give clear lifecycle status updates including active, phased out and obsolete parts. These are coming to, or have already seen their end of life, and are no longer supported by the manufacturer.
