Obsolescence Forum

Obsolescence Day with Expert Forum

Many highly innovative electronic components such as microcontrollers, memory ICs and displays are these days often only available for one or two years after production before they are replaced by the next more powerful generation of products. However, it’s not only this development that is increasingly causing problems for manufacturing companies from the automotive, aerospace, military, railway, power station, medicine, and automation technology sectors, which sometimes have to stock spare parts for their products for up to 20 years or more. Company acquisitions, environmental requirements and unforeseeable events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, demonstrate time and again how fragile the supposedly secure international supply chains can be.

But how can the manifold obsolescence risks for a company be minimized?

Participants of the virtual 4th Quarterly Meeting of COGD (Component Obsolescence Group Deutschland) e.V. on November 26, 2020, will receive many valuable tips in the four online lectures.

  • Database-driven Obsolescence Management with IHS BOM Intelligence (Jörg Berke-meyer, Business Development IHS Markit)
  • Portfolio clearance and Proactiv campaigns at OSRAM Opto Semiconductor (Wilhelm Weiss, Senior Marketing Manager OSRAM Opto Semiconductors)
  • Long-Term Storage of electronic components as a part of strategic obsolescence management (Holger Krumme, Managing Director Technical Operations HTV)
  • SCIP (Axel Wagner, Deputy Chairman of the Board COGD)
