The obsolescence we are talking about here is characterised by the permanent end of the production of a component or equipment by its original manufacturer.Check out Apside’s support.

LSS Equipment Obsolescence Monitoring

the context

When preparing the incident resolution strategy meetings, we provide an aid to decision-making by carrying out the following assignments:

  • Entering precise data on a regular basis to a database linked to the changes during production shutdown (stock, consumption)
  • Make it usable and correlate it with other databases (including PLM)
  • Analysing the effects (criticality, supply times, use cases, origin of the need, date of the need)

LSS Equipment Obsolescence Monitoring

our team

The equipment obsolescence monitoring activity is integrated within the assignments deployed to numerous clients in mixed site/Agency outsourcing in TS or on-platform:
  • Since September 2010 at ArianeGroup on the mechanical floor resources and secure infrastructures
  • Since February 2017 on all the Thales DMS and military AVS & carriers


The two main detection methods used by the teams are:

  • Proactive detection by strategic monitoring (catalogue scanning)
  • Reactive detection when taking orders for parts related to purchases

The teams are made up of general engineers proficient in using database tools (Access, etc.) because of the vast range of spare parts families concerned.

The relationship with the customer is very close because the issues concerning the availability of parts/equipment on operational sites are crucial.x.

LSS Equipment Obsolescence Monitoring

our support

Apside’s support focuses on 2 main aspects:

 Reception and alerting of all detected manufacturing stoppages, Stock and consumption mapping, Updating of collaborative BoD(s), Interface with brokers (component brokers).

Support :

  • Search for obsolete technical reference documentation and propose substitutes
  • Ensure handover to technical resolution of obsolescence
  • Guarantee the overall process (from detection to documentation update)
  • Summarize via monitoring indicators

Obsolescence monitoring can be carried out within the following scope:

  • All mechanical parts (hardware, parts for lifting and rolling equipment, aeronautical parts)
  • All electrical/electronic/electromechanical parts
  • Fluids (greases, oils, fuels)
  • Others (paints, infra equipment)

Our support facilitated a significant increase in the capacity to prioritise obsolescence resolutions and to clean up and update the spares database. This created a solid OPEX for design recommendations, selection of spare parts, setting up data flows to build the illustrated catalogue. This also led to the development and implementation of a specific sustainability tool in order to assist in the decision on the status of obsolescence (cross-checking information on nomenclatures, stocks, needs, consumption, etc.)
