Spare Parts Sourcing

ATC 0 6584 Article rating: 4.5

If you have ever purchased extra light bulbs just to be ready for the next time a bulb blew, you may have unwittingly performed Spare Parts Sourcing for your household. Spare Parts Sourcing is the planning and implementation of strategies to ensure the cost-effective availability of spare parts in a company’s inventory. This can be handled in-house by a designated individual or department (depending on the size and scope of the operation), but can also be outsourced to an inventory management firm that specializes in Strategic Service Management (SSM) or MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations). Spare parts are extra parts that may be needed to repair or replace a broken part, and are readily available when needed. Spare parts could be kept in stock to repair consumer goods, machines that manufacture these goods, or any number of other things used in the production of goods and services.
