One Day Awareness Course
This course is best received as a corporate training course where OM trainers come into your organisations for a one day awareness course.
Personnel from various disciplines, e.g. engineering, design, procurement, commercial, support etc. can come together and collectively discuss the issue and agree what should be done about it as an organisation.
This course will provide the delegate with an appreciation of Obsolescence Management and its underlying principles. The fundamental principles are established and then built upon using a combination of advanced presentation techniques and informal instructor / delegate interaction.
The course will explore the origins of obsolescence and what continues to drive the need for managing obsolescence risk to equipment. We will look at the relevant International, NATO and British Standards and policies that have been published by major customers.
This will be followed by a high level look at what constitutes an Obsolescence Management Policy and an Obsolescence Management Plan. Other subjects covered are contractual issues, legislation and the main factors that affect the risk from obsolescence and the major methods of mitigating the risk and resolving obsolescence issues.
