Procurement and Supply Australasia (PASA) is pleased to announce that Phillip Slater, the Founder of SparePartsKnowHow.com will chair the upcoming MRO for Procurement Conference. The MRO conference will be held at the Stamford Plaza Hotel in Brisbane, Australia on 20th & 21st September 2018.
This two-day special event will give companies the insight to gain greater control of their MRO and spare parts inventory spend, address key issues with MRO and spare parts inventory management and unlock the significant hidden costs-savings associated with MRO procurement.
This unique, specialized, and focused MRO conference examines issues such as who should own and control MRO and spare parts, why most companies underestimate its importance, and how to develop a good MRO strategy that can improve your bottom line.
The conference answers the fundamental question of ‘How can procurement, spare parts management, maintenance, and service professionals work together to deliver the right spare parts to provide to customers, production and operations at the right time to reduce downtime and ultimately reduce costs?
Mr Nigel Wardropper, Managing Director, at PASA said, ‘This conference is the pre-eminent MRO and spare parts management event in the Australasian region and we are thrilled to get someone of Phillip’s standing to Chair our conference. Phillip is a global thought-leader in spare parts inventory management and has built his online training business, SparePartsKnowHow.com, into the leading online resource centre for spare parts management practitioners.’
Phillip Slater added, ‘My attraction to this conference was that over two, content filled days attendees will hear from industry leaders about hard-won lessons learnt and case studies highlighting the ‘pitfalls’ and ‘wins ‘realised by tried and tested MRO strategies. This is truly valuable in helping companies develop and implement an effective spare parts and MRO management strategy.’
In addition, Phillip will be personally presenting a one-day workshop titled, Building a Best in Class MRO Strategy and providing a bonus Q&A session, giving attendees the opportunity to have all their MRO and spare parts management questions answered.
