Topic Area: Online Boot Camp
The Online Boot Camp is instructor led, 100% online, group or team training teaching the fundamentals of spare parts inventory management.
- Improve your team’s spare parts management coordination.
- Give everyone the same insight for spare parts management.
- Reduce the ‘friction’ inherent in implementing change.
Without understanding this, and the implications, companies continue to experience:
- ‘Emotion’ based decision making that leads to overstocking.
- Excessive obsolete inventory caused by a failure to recognize the need to manage these holdings.
- Poor coordination and planning interaction that leads to high expediting costs, or worse, missed maintenance ‘windows’.
- Operational silos and ‘finger pointing’.
But it doesn’t have to be like this.
Our Spare Parts Management Online Boot Camp is a team based training program that can put all your team members on the same page.
By giving your team equal access to our content you equip them with the know-how and skills to better coordinate their activity and more effectively manage all aspects of spare parts inventory.
Your entire team can learn what they need and do so with a ‘single source of truth’.
This course addresses the four issues that teams find most challenging:
Identifying what to stock
Our ‘planning horizon’, 7 questions, and identifying critical inventory approaches make it clear what you should, and should not, hold in your inventory.
Deciding how many to stock
Using a simple, clear, and immediately useable approach anyone can determine the right holding level in just a few minutes.
Identifying and implementing best practice
Through extensive research we have identified the 7 best practices that make a real difference to your results.
Minimizing disposal and obsolescence
With both ‘first-time-buy’ and ‘end-of-life’ management we show you how to avoid getting stuck with inventory you don’t want or need

Weekly Individual Study:
- Each module consists of reading, videos, and exercises. The participants review this content before each online session.
- Expected ‘homework’ time averages at approximately 60-90 minutes per week.
- The online session then acts as a tutorial to clarify understanding and answer questions.
Online Group Discussion
- The participants can engage in a discussion with other participants, and they can ask questions of the course facilitator.
- This enables them to reach a common understanding of the issues and solutions.
- There is a 26-page workbook to guide students through the course that includes all the exercises.
- The workbook also helps participants develop a personal action plan for execution in your business.
- Students that attend all four sessions will receive a certificate acknowledging their participation.
Spare parts management is a ‘team sport’.
That is, it takes a team of people to produce effective results in terms of stock holding levels, availability, accuracy, and cost.
You can either assist them in working together or force them to work it out on their own.”
