There is an old management maxim that says that ‘the good is the enemy of the great’. The way that I interpret this expression is that make real progress with their spare parts inventory management companies need to stop being incremental. This is because incremental activity makes us feel like we are making progress with spare parts management but often holds us back from achieving all that could be achieved.
This is different from the old plan-do-check-act where we could have a plan that is a great leap forward but that needs to be implemented in bite size pieces.
Let me explain my idea of not being incremental with some examples.
