Strategies To Manage Obsolescence In Aerospace And Defense

Test engineers spend up to 50 percent of their time dealing with obsolescence in test program sets (TPSs). This National Instruments Webinar discusses how to overcome obsolescence challenges and explores best practices in operations implementation, hardware acquisition, and software design to reduce the sustainment burden of handling obsolescence in test systems long before the equipment goes end of life.
