There are many stages in the medical device management lifecycle to consider, and from the planning stage to commissioning, dismantling and decommissioning, replaceing an equipment is a critical decision. This phase includes several information that help replacement decisions intelligent. Technical, monetary and safety principles are taken into account when replacing medical equipment. One of the most frequently criterion is service life. In recent times, the delivery of a sustainable competitive advantage through the optimization of the management of non-essence activities is considered more relevant. A non-essence example is the Lifespan management of capital goods which are required in supporting the processes involved in healthcare operations ranging from acquiring assets to maximizing the operation, sustaining the performance and conclude the right time to get rid of it properly. The objective: is to identify if Total Cost Ownership (TCO) will give recommendations for decision-making even though it is capable of helping us identify the optimal economic life of the medical device. Overall, 40% of our specimens showed that monitoring TCO is essential to the continuous mapping of the cost of these devices on service.
