Issue Details

I have seen products that were in a "Mature" state in their life cycle, but the product page of my hardware does not say anything about its life cycle. Can I safely assume it is in the Active stage of its life cycle?

Solution

Unless the hardware product page does not say otherwise, you can safely assume that the product is in the "Active" phase of its life cycle.

Hardware can have the following product life cycle phases:
  • Active 
  • Mature
  • Maintenance
  • Obsolete
Please refer to Hardware Product Life Cycle Policies for more in depth information regarding each phase.
