Obsolescence is the greatest key factor when considering replacement of these assets, as the older technical equipment becomes, the harder is it to source. For example, the printed circuit-boards which controls the lift services; these PCB’s are usually installed in the lift motor room serving the heaver high-voltage control equipment for the elevators.
These controlling printed circuit boards(PCB’s) are typically single vendor original equipment manufacture, hence, the price will increase as they become older and are phased out by the O.E.M. These parameters need to be considered when delivering a due diligence report.
