MRO Data Management
Shared information is the very definition of a more connected MRO program.
When the entire supply chain is viewed as a single entity – not separate non-collaborative silos – data can be effectively accessed, managed and shared freely and transparently. Greater data management means better decisions, which means a straighter path to true competitive advantage.
MRO data cleansing begins SDI’s approach to data management.
For every solution we offer, we make sure the very latest technologies for data collection, warehousing and management are in place. We start with clean data, including controlled data maintenance for all description changes and new parts, to ensure information integrity. MRO data cleansing is the cornerstone of effective data management.
SDiExchange – the perfect complement to our MRO data cleansing.
After the MRO data cleansing process, and because data stored across multiple systems is often difficult to consolidate, we can create a data warehouse for your reporting and analysis or we can give you the data in a format for you to upload into your system. If you choose to use our system, it would become your custom catalogue. Through our proprietary SDiExchange system, a single platform providing visibility across inventories, we can map the success of your supply program.
We integrate seamlessly with your current system.
SDiExchange can be easily integrated with your existing system as a plug-‘n-play platform, providing an easy-to-use and seamlessly connected process for requisitioning material and other supply transactions. The advantages are obvious right from implementation – processes are streamlined, workflow improves, and productivity increases. Redundant practices are also eliminated and your entire organization saves noticeable time and money.

It takes a progressive manager to push the organization to look at indirect spend and managing it in a different way - but once you see it, then you realize the opportunity.
In the third post in this series on MRO As-a-Service by Spend Matters, Pierre Mitchell and Michael Lamoureux talk about how managing MRO as a process delivers benefits from efficiency to effectiveness and beyond to an evolutionary phase. The next generation of value, MRO-as-a-Service, helps organizations build intelligent, agile, scalable and integrated supply chains (direct and indirect).
The project team has worked its way through Define, Measure, Analyze, and Improve. It’s time to begin the Control phase. The key stakeholders gather to evaluate the solution as implemented and create a plan to sustain the improvements. The goal is to standardize the improved processes, establish an audit schedule and schedule periodic follow-up to identify additional opportunities for improvement.
