Component Obsolescence Group (COG) : 15 July, 2005  (Company News)
Speakers from the US Department of Defence, the UK Ministry of Defence, Westinghouse Rail, Rochester Electronics and BAE Systems have all been lined up to address a major conference on how organisations which need to maintain expensive, long lifespan equipment can deal with the growing problem of component obsolescence. 'Obsolescence: Risks, Strategies and Effective Management Processes' is being hosted by the Component Obsolescence Group and is due to take place from June 28-30 at St David s Hotel in Cardiff, Wales. There will also be an associated trade exhibition. Ted Glum, Director of Defence Microelectronics Activity (part of the US Department of Defence) and Howard Perkins, Director of Enabling Services, UK Ministry of Defence will give keynote speeches with further contributions from Logistical & Mechanical Services of South Africa, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute in the US. The conference will cover obsolescence management strategies and potential future problems and ways of dealing with them, the effectiveness of using off-the-shelf commercial components to replace parts designed for the industrial market and the impact of the new RoHs and WEEE directives. System and component obsolescence case studies will also be presented.
