Avoid Traditional Problems

What are some typical issues business owners and factory managers face? Spare Parts Inventory problems. Large amounts of capital tied up in seldom used parts, and still having interruptions in production due to not having the part when needed.

Money as well as time is lost when parts are mismanaged. Not knowing what parts are stocked, or what equipment the part is used on, often result in ordering parts already on site.

Speaking of time, lost production time and lack of worker productivity is often traced to wait times for missing spares. Time that could be spent getting production back on line is instead spent searching for parts, or historical order information or product details. In other instances, parts ordered repeatedly lead to costly procurement actions.
