Rob Arthur

Site Operations Manager

Actively engaged on site for one of our largest higher educational facilities clients, Rob is the example of how SDI partners with our clients to produce long term cost savings and value from a more connected approach to MRO.

Previously an Engineering Manager at General Electric, Rob brings a strong engineering background to SDI and applies a detailed, LeanSix Sigma eye to all of his daily activities. Because of his success in value stream mapping and identifying waste in the process, Rob travels to locations to assist in deep dives into our match exception rates and receiving processes to determine improvement initiatives.

Success Story

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.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
