Abstract

This article proposes a process to manage the problem of electronic component obsolescence from a military product support perspective. By assessing applicable literature as well as feedback and lessons learned from relevant support projects, a methodology for the management of component obsolescence is proposed. The aim of the research is to provide a definition of component obsolescence drivers and to formulate a process for the management of component obsolescence within a military electronic support environment. The process provides guidelines on how management activities can be optimised to reduce applicable obsolescence risks and thereby reducing related life cycle costs.

Hierdie artikel stel 'n proses voor hoe om die probleem van onbeskikbaarheid (uitgediendheid) van elektroniese komponente in die militêre steunomgewing te bestuur. Toepaslike literatuur asook terugvoer en lesse geleer uit toepaslike steunprojekte is ondersoek ten einde 'n proses voor te stel om die onbeskikbaarheid van elektroniese komponente te bestuur. Die doel van die navorsing is om drywers te identifiseer wat aanleiding gee tot onbeskikbaarheid van elektroniese komponente in die militêre steun omgewing en om 'n proses te bepaal om hierdie probleem en risiko's te bestuur. Die proses bied riglyne hoe bestuursaktiwiteite geoptimaliseer kan word om beskikbaarheidsprobleme te beperk en dus ook lewensikluskoste van elektroniese stelsels en projekte te verminder.
