Recently I visited a company located near Hobart, in Tasmania. Hobart is the southern most capital city in Australia and possibly the world.
One of the interesting things about Hobart (from a spare parts inventory perspective) is that it is a long way away from many industrial centres that supply spare parts.
For example, Hobart is more than 16,000 kms (10,000 miles) from Germany. This means that the people there have learnt how to manage their inventory with long supply chains.
It might be a surprise to hear that this does not necessarily translate into more inventory!
