Product Lifecycle Stages
Astronics Ballard Technology has established a reputation for long-life products and industry-leading customer support. A high priority is placed on keeping products in production and supporting those products as long as possible to ensure customers benefit from years of reliable service from their purchase.
As product designs mature, newer products are typically introduced that provide advantages in terms of performance and value. Older products may also be affected by component availability issues, affecting cost and manufacturability. The lifecycle stages shown in the accompanying graphic provide a way to communicate the current status and availability of Astronics Ballard Technology products. These stages are described in more detail below. It is important to note that products in the "Production" lifecycle stage should be specified for all new applications. Please contact Astronics Ballard Technology for further assistance.
