BRIDGING SUPPLY CHAIN GAP FOR EXEMPT HIGH-RELIABILITY OEM’S

Abstract: Bills of materials are being transitioned to obsolete and legacy parts outside the control of the OEMs and at a rapid pace. The life cycle for a military product generally takes over two years for the design and initial deployment, followed by a production life cycle of over 10 years and a repair/warranty cycle of 20 plus years. A redesign to include an alternate part number is no easy task due to redesign review, validation and reliability testing.
