The use of an OM Tool / Service is an important element of understanding current and future obsolescence risk and their use should be incorporated in a proactive OM strategy.

TLS is in a strategic partnership with an Obsolescence Management total service provider (AVCOM).

AVCOM deliver an obsolescence analysis, mitigation and resolution service for your equipment. It is a cost-effective, customisable Obsolescence Management Service (and Tool) to help manage parts to minimise the obsolescence impact on equipment.

AVCOM can manage any assembly or component type. The service covers all parts including electronic, electrical, mechanical, material and COTS (Commercial off the Shelf) assemblies.

AVCOM can provide the following functionality:

  • Bill of Material loading.
  • Part Cleansing Support (identifying and resolving unidentified part numbers, manufacturers etc.).
  • Access to real-time obsolescence status of Bills of Material.
  • Case Management:
    • Ability for Customers to raise a ‘Case’ for each obsolescence issue and to manage issues and concerns from identification through to resolution.
  • Sharing of obsolescence issues and resolutions and to understand commonality across projects/equipment.
