The speed of technology development can lead to short-term obsolescence of electronic components. This in turn can result in reduced life-cycles for finished products and can also affect maintenance.
To address this challenge, Rolls-Royce offers a life-cycle management that consists of:
monitoring the condition of units and systems
manufacturing processes and tools
supply chain and component obsolescence
conducting plant safety evaluation
Risk and value analysis can also be incorporated to indicate the optimum solution for the customer.
