MRO Lifecycle

inventory cycle graph

The ISO 55000: Standards for Asset Management sets the expectation that all assets will be managed throughout all phases of their lifecycle: planning/acquisition, commissioning, operating/maintaining and disposal/renewal.

As with the asset management lifecycle, the same cycle applies to parts – items are created, attributes changed and ultimately removed from the catalogue. These transitions represent an Item Lifecycle.

Across a parts’ lifecycle, numerous challenges present themselves in the support of operations. Challenges like these:

  • 80% of Bill of Materials contain inaccurate information
  • 97% of Lead Times are incorrect
  • Up to 25% of Maintenance’s time is spent looking for parts
  • Up to 50% of open Work Orders are a result of
    missing parts

With an optimized system supporting the asset and parts lifecycle, the following organizational benefits can be realized:

Improved asset performance: Puts the organization on a direct path to improving return on asset (ROA)

Informed decision making: A maturing system promotes the flow of information and enables better decision making to effectively balance costs, risks, opportunities, and performance across the Supply Chain while meeting targeted business objectives.

Simplified risk management: An integrated platform simplifies the way risk, opportunities and liabilities are managed across the functional areas supporting the overall business.

Performance improvement delivered across two distinct service models.

Continuous improvement requires a steady use of skilled resources, time and a level of rigor that ensures operational success is attained.

Our MRO Health Check is a cost-effective way to establish the strength of your supporting supply chain, identifying priority areas for improvement and the associated value.

Identification of required spare parts is always part of the process, but is typically the last step when both time and budget are in scarce supply.

The quality of the insights, decision and actions taken are only as good as the data that drives them.
Across disparate systems, the complexity is amplified.

Every component criticality is widely understood and is considered a necessary part of managing a group of assets/components when there is not an abundant supply of resources.

Obsolescence is a fact of life. As soon as a part is put into inventory, some degree of obsolescence risk is accepted – but this does not mean the risk should be unmanaged.

Strategic Sourcing/Category Management is an approach that best-in-class organizations leverage to buy more effectively and reduce unit costs.

A bill of materials (BOM) is a list of items used to perform maintenance activities. An Asset or Equipment BOM outlines the material associated with that particular asset or set of similar assets.

Managed Services

A well-designed inventory optimization program should be focused on improving inventory mix, ensuring you have what you need to support ongoing operations.

There is a lifecycle to all equipment and assets; they are commissioned, operated and taken out of service.

Performing steps consistently is important, but what if they are consistently wrong? How would you know without reporting?
