A team-based approach to spare parts inventory management demands team-based training
Spare parts inventory 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.
These team members come from different areas of your business, including: storeroom, purchasing, maintenance, engineering, and finance.
By training the people from these parts of your company you gain the advantage of shared knowledge, insight, and goals.
It is by not having this shared view of spare parts management that companies experience results that are, let’s say, sub-optimal.
The Elite Teams membership at SparePartsKnowHow.com is a company-level membership that can put all your team members ‘on the same page’.
By giving your team equal access to all of 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’.
The Elite Teams membership is designed to flexibly provide both structured training and ad-hoc support.
The structure comes from our Advanced Spare Parts Management Course.
The support comes from giving your team to access resources that address specific issues via the Spare Parts Management Library.
The Elite Teams membership gives your registered team members Pro Level access to SparePartsKnowHow. The Pro Level puts the ‘how to’ into SparePartsKnowHow.com!
By gaining access to all online content a Pro Level membership will equip your team with the know-how and skills to effectively optimize and manage all aspects of your spare parts inventory.
To ensure that your team is quickly up-to-speed we will provide a group on-boarding orientation session.
If a team member leaves the company or is promoted then you can swap-in another team member for the remainder of the membership time.
Each quarter we will provide a report showing the training module achievement progress of each team member.
By joining as an Elite Teams member your company will benefit from significant cost savings when compared to the cost of individual memberships.
The Elite Teams membership allows you to register up to 20 team members. There is no minimum.
Once your company joins, your team can access everything – at a time and place that suits them.

In addition, our progress reporting enables your HR function to track the development of individuals and the success of the team membership approach.
