International Institute of Obsolescence Management (IIOM) Conference & Exhibition
Obsolescene - Everything's Affected; Everyone's Involved
16 June, 2015 - 19 June, 2015
The Inaugural International Institute of Obsolescence Management (IIOM) Conference & Exhibition is being held in Edinburgh, Scotland on 16th to 18th June 2015.
IIOM intends to carry on the great work that COG has accomplished in the past 17 years and enhance it by creating a professional body for those involved, or interested in, Obsolescence Management.
The Institute will be for professionals who are dedicated to furthering their knowledge and understanding of Obsolescence Management.
This conference is the first to showcase the IIOM and to position the institute as THE organisation to represent Obsolescence Management practitioners worldwide.
Much of the Obsolescence Management activity up to now has concentrated on analysing and mitigating the risk to electronic parts. This has been the main focus, quite rightly, as there is a clear risk from these types of parts. Today, however, many organisations are now managing multiple types of parts, electronic and non-electronic. Software, materials, tools, processes and skills amongst others, are all areas where pro-active Obsolescence Management is a key activity.
The Key Note speech on Wednesday 17 June will be given by David Saul, BP Global Subsea.
