Superficially, achieving best practice spare parts inventory management looks simple because spare parts can appear to be just like any other inventory. But the problem is that they aren’t. Spare parts inventory is different to other inventory types and this is why best practice (or even good practice) can be so hard to achieve.
The reality is that spare parts inventory management and optimization brings together the diverse disciplines of maintenance management, inventory management, storeroom management, supply chain, procurement and logistics. This adds a layer of complexity that isn’t found with other inventory types.
As a result, most companies managing spare parts inventory end up with too much of some items, not enough of others. They are overstocked, yet under serviced. They spend more than they should on working capital while experiencing extended downtime that costs a fortune.
And that is why we developed this website, SparePartsKnowHow.com; to help people and companies solve their spare parts inventory management problems.
