It is hard to find classes that go into this detail. As someone who does not have experience with managing spare parts, it quickly becomes overwhelming.
I now have a supply room policy, a procedure manual (detailed instructions) which includes a planned approach for adding stock and reviewing stocking levels and a plan for removing obsolete parts.

I was really impressed with the material and content of the class. I learned a great deal and am working on applying that knowledge.

I take this opportunity to thank you for this powerfully crafted course. The material and presentation were efficiently structured. The conceptual clarity accomplished by using very simple language, by no means simplistic. The learning experience was profound.
Khalid Majeed | Assistant Purchasing Manager | Shandong Electric Power
Your material and presentation is very clear and easy to understand and I have learned so much. I wasn’t trained to manage an inventory but have grown into this position.

QAFCO engaged Phillip to both train a cross section of personnel in spare parts management techniques and help us develop spare parts management philosophy documentation.
I can summarize my opinion about his deliverance of the objectives as simply brilliant and practical and his ability to train people is extraordinary.
Ali Abrar | Lead Support Engineer – Rotating Machinery | QAFCO
We have used the services of Phillip to train maintenance, procurement, planning and warehouse personnel in spare parts management.
It was his distinctive logical approach in setting spare parts holding levels that really won over the participants in the workshop. This was the first time that I’ve seen something that can be practically applied on a daily basis by almost anyone and without the need for expensive software.
Probin Konwar | Head of Maintenance Planning | QAFCO

Phillip Slater’s boot camp provided all of us with hand on experience in techniques and tools to use to consistently identify and better manage spare parts inventory.

I predict that our stock reduction will be about 30% but the absolute figure is less interesting than the confidence that I have now that the stock that remains is moving and necessary in the current situation.
Andre Randsdorp | Purchasing Manager | RIOR BV/Rioned
Phillip and his website www.SparePartsKnowHow.com has been a great resource for me and my team.
We have enjoyed his insight and years of experience to help guide activities and streamline our business to become an efficient spare parts operation that supports maintenance and engineers. Another great thing about Phillip is his availability.
