The right obsolescence management strategy for the entire service lifecycle

Rail systems are long-lasting investments with planned service lives of 30 to 40 years. The supply of spare parts for railways needs to be guaranteed over the long term in order to ensure continuous operability and efficient maintenance. With easy obsolescence solutions, Siemens Mobility Rail Services offers railway operators a comprehensive portfolio for obsolescence management according to IEC standard 62402 to ensure the availability of spare parts over the entire lifecycle of their vehicles and infrastructure systems.

  • Obsolescene notice
