Description / Abstract:

This document defines a Product Life Cycle curve model for use by the electronics industry to standardize the terms and definitions used to describe the life cycle status of a product.. When required by the customer, a component or piece of equipment needs to be identified as to where it is in its life cycle. Such information can be useful when specifying parts for use in new systems or as replacements in existing systems. This information shall be classified by phases or stages on the Product Life Cycle curve. The same classification shall be used across the electronics industry. The time remaining in the phase or stage and the time until the end of the product's life are also required. The time must be expressed in years. This information should be reviewed by the EIA annually for data accuracy. All member suppliers shall be solicited for this information. Non-member information may be included through agreements with the EIA. The EIA is the owner of the published information.
