Obsolescence Management/Sustainment Engineering
Total life-cycle optimization provided through proactive obsolescence management
The Collins Aerospace proactive obsolescence management process covers the total life cycle of the product to predict and replace obsolete parts before they become crises. Our form-fit-function obsolescence solutions allow an easy and cost-effective transition from aging fleets to newer designs, which then minimize sustainment vulnerabilities. We monitor the rapidly changing environment, extreme mission and training conditions and newly developed requirements to keep you ready now.
Proactive solutions that enable self-sustainability with the support and expertise of Collins Aerospace as your partner
Our depot partnerships are collaborative relationships with military service depots that enhance support to the battle force, humanitarian or peacekeeping mission. These partnerships can improve your core depot maintenance capabilities, facilities and technical expertise – leading to improved MRO performance.
Collins Aerospace provides a three-phased approach to military depot partnerships:
Collins Aerospace engineers will perform an assessment to determine the effort required to establish independent I-Level or full Depot Level capability at your facility.
We’ll perform depot assessments to assure depot activation requirements, including schedule and budget, are fully understood for successful execution of a depot activation. A component repair information package (CRIP) is provided detailing your existing repair capabilities. The CRIP includes information such as the equipment to be tested, the test equipment required, technical repair manuals, training and other support resources. We’ll also perform a site survey to document any capability shortcomings at the proposed depot site.
The activation phase is the implementation of the depot assessment planning activity to transition from OEM managed repairs to an overall sustainment partnership. The activation phase will use the data generated during the depot assessment to develop and deliver the equipment and the training and technical data needed.
Our sustainment partnership ensures long-term product sustainment. Our expert team and ongoing support will meet the necessary requirements to improve readiness.
