Abstract:Obsolescence management is becoming increasingly important due to multiple developments within Thales and the defence market. The goal of this research is defined as: "construct a model to assess the differences and impact of obsolescence strategies related to maintenance significant items, after the design phase at Thales Hengelo in order to create a guideline on how to manage and to decrease the impact of obsolescence over the system life cycle”. With the use of the model, multiple obsolescence management strategies are analysed and the optimal strategy (minimum total expected costs, while maintaining a certain cycle service level) for specific spare parts can be determined over (part of the) life cycle. Furthermore, the impact of variation in the installed base development and Years Till End Of Life (YTEOL) is analysed.
