Joining forces to manage obsolescence effectively

Internationally renowned companies share practical experiences
Obsolescence has become increasingly important in recent years. It is more and more often the case that companies run the risk of no longer being able to source urgently needed spare parts for their facilities. This is particularly applicable to electronic components. A machine failing because of a missing part can generate immense costs. That’s why well-functioning obsolescence management is strategically important for the economic success of a company. The VDI Spare Part Management conference will show you what you need to be aware of in order to ensure a quick and lasting supply of spare parts.
Leading companies such as KLM, Vanderlande, Valmet, Outotec or Baxter Planning Systems as well as universities including the Economic University of Rotterdam will present practical examples of spare part management. Interactive World Cafés will allow you to discuss various questions about after sales services and logistics. Furthermore, you’ll gain insight into the possibilities offered to spare parts management by data analytics, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and blockchain.
The conference program with exceptionally relevant topics was put together with the support of internationally renowned experts:
- Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Heinbach, GMP German Machine Parts GmbH & Co. KG.
- Hans Christian Siegert, Dr. Schaab + Partner GmbH
