Spare parts inventory management is an effective strategy used to ensure continuous production should a machine or equipment fail to function. Specifically, critical spare parts are the working equipment parts that will hurt your business operations when they fail. This list includes everything needed to produce or manufacture something correctly. These spare parts are your assets. Without them, you face the risk of shutdown.
Why Spare Parts Inventory Management is Essential
Spare parts management is the key to the smooth and efficient business operation. Proper levels maximize production. If equipment and machines stop functioning during peak operations, you could incur massive losses. To reduce or completely eliminate downtime, ensure that you keep critical spare parts on-hand.
To determine what is right for your organization, you must perform a strategic evaluation. A good forecasting plan and understanding of critical spare parts management are essential to maintain your operations.
First, determine how much an hour of downtime would cost the company and then compare that with the cost of storing and purchasing critical spare parts. This risk management approach ensures that you are not spending too much on your spare parts. It’s also important to look at the history of failure for a particular part as well as how important that part is for the entire operation of your plant.
To ensure business success, management must know how to effectively manage this inventory. This is where GP MaTe comes in.
