Allan Webb and TLS join forces to create the Obsolescence Management Partnership.

Delegates at the Component Obsolescence Group (COG) members meeting, held in October at the RNLI College, Poole, were briefed on the new joint venture between the two heavyweights of the industry, Allan Webb Ltd and Through Life Support Ltd (TLS).

With approximately 22,000 components discontinued annually worldwide, according to industry sources and Government agencies, obsolescence is a significant cost driver and can impact equipment, systems or products at all stages of the acquisition process and through life. Early identification of obsolescence risk allows a wider range of options to be considered and consequently reduces the actual cost of resolution and through life costs.

Technical Documentation
Our technical documentation department writes operation, maintenance and training instructions for any type of system, equipment or product. The department provides a variety of technical writing services, creating different types of documents from multi-lingual product manuals for consumer durables to Army Equipment Support Publications (AESPs) for military equipment. The department can augment clients’ existing in-house resources or deliver a fully outsourced, turnkey product. The team of technical writers hold a range of engineering and authoring qualifications and come from a wide range of professions such as engineering, IT, maintenance or the military. The technical authoring department is also supported by a team of technical illustrators who produces technical illustrations and graphics, either as part of a documentation project or standalone illustration task.
