Obsolescence Management

Our Obsolescence Management technology

Parts obsolescence can occur at any stage of a product’s lifecycle. When components become unavailable due to technical, financial, and legal reasons, serious disruptions can occur, such as loss of production capacity, delayed product shipments, and increased product lifecycle costs. Accelerating advancements in technology and environmental regulations make it increasingly difficult to keep up with obsolescence management and ensure there are no oversights or errors in the process. Traditional methods, such as tracking spreadsheets and manual audits, are outdated, cumbersome, and unreliable.

Source Intelligence’s Obsolescence Management software reduces the burden by automating obsolescence management processes. Our platform features propriety technology that scans BOMs to evaluate end-of-life risks and identifies form-fit-function alternative parts and components. Our solution anticipates disruptions to your supply chain continuity and gives you the ability to address problems proactively, allowing your entire supply chain to run more efficiently.

Key features of our Obsolescence Management software:

  • Accurate product lifecycle predictions
  • Automated product change notices & end-of-life alerts
  • Integrations to all major PLM & ERP platforms
