Effective obsolescence management is more important now than ever before. This episode of EUAudio looks specifically at why a proactive approach to obsolescence can help medical device manufacturers prevent past issues from resurfacing and hindering progress in the sector.
In this episode of EUAudio, our manufacturing podcast, we explore obsolescence in the nuclear industry and why implementing a proactive approach can result in an array of benefits to a facility. The earlier that any obsolescence issues are identified, the more possibilities there are for avoiding costly implications.
This episode of EUAudio explains why a proactive approach to obsolescence management allows manufacturers in the military sector to plan in advance, sourcing spare parts where it is most convenient and minimising downtime due to unexpected breakage.
