Learning to Let It Go: Obsolescence Management and an OEM Tale of Woe

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” – Ann Landers 

In this week’s podcast, we dive deep into the world of long-term product sustainment practices and obsolescence management. Tania Scroggie (GDCA) joins us to discuss the challenges of older designs in today’s OEMs, the delicate balance between sales and obsolete inventory, and how we can best evaluate product end of life. Also this week,  we check out the details of the first biodegradable display developed by a group of scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
