In Depth Obsolescence Risk Analysis of a
Major Radar System
TLS have supported a major Defence company in supporting a key radar system. The task involved detailed analysis and reporting of obsolescence status and risk to the project. Assessment of obsolescence risk was coupled with assessment of spares and forecasted demand to provide a real picture of the obsolescence health of the equipment and the project risk looking forward. It involved base lining the obsolescence health of the equipment, periodic reporting and providing obsolescence alerts where obsolescence status of parts change and may affect the supportability of the equipment. It also involved extracting a significant amount of component data from source drawings and parts lists that were in PDF format.
