At launch we have 400K core and extended RS articles with lifecycle related data, with over 70m alternative products.


The lifecycle status is only available when logged in to DesignSpark.


It's dependent on us having the data available, whilst we have strong coverage of the RS range we'll be working hard over the next 6 months to increase the levels of coverage.


Currently we only have Obsolescence Manager available in English.


We have a support centre and community forum for Obsolescence Manager. This includes tutorials and support to ensure you get the best from Obsolescence Manager.
