EOL Materials Management

NEO Tech is privileged to work on many programs that extend far beyond their expected life cycles. We’ve learned that effective life cycle management demands a proactive approach to obsolescence. As NEO Tech starts to work on dormant programs, one of our first tasks is validating supply chain feasibility. We work with a variety of dependable vendors to secure materials and sources that can keep a legacy program alive.

Managing a product’s life cycle requires an ongoing strategy. At NEO Tech we work with our customers to minimize component obsolescence risk.  We maintain a program to monitor Supplier Product Change Notifications (PCNs) but more importantly we  proactively identify potential component obsolescence through our predictive modeling.   We conduct this analysis for customer designs to minimize pipeline risk.
