Shirley King
Crib Attendant

Shirley King is a Crib Attendant for the SDI Site Team at the Ascend Plant. She has been with SDI for almost 3 years and is responsible for a plethora of things. Here title as Crib Attendant does not fully describe the indispensability of her contributions. She is a “Johnny on the Spot”; essential in stock pulling/issue clerk, receiving, BIC initiatives, and a great support to her coworkers in any capacity that is needed. She has that can-do-attitude which not only encompasses work, but extends to her personal life. She selflessly gives her time and energy as assistant coach for her daughter’s cheerleading squad and is an essential part of any team.

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

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.
