You know you’re in MRO Trouble when…

MRO Trouble

MRO is a mission-critical, core-enabling, integrated business process. But it’s also one of the greatest sources of waste and value destruction in many organizations. MRO can directly impact business outcomes – and those outcomes are in a manufacturer’s or asset-intensive facility’s best interest when MRO is viewed as a business enabler and not just a spend category. But many companies view MRO as a function of procurement, or maintenance, or take your pick. This mentality keeps firms from taking advantage of MRO As-a-Service, which truly enables all facets impacting the supply chain to be rationalized and optimized.

This eye-opening guide to pinpointing and resolving common and wasteful MRO missteps will help you move reactive business operations to nimble, effective and intelligent operations. You’ll learn how to increase speed-to-value with technology that is integrated to connect and focus all MRO functions on achieving cost, reliability and supply chain improvement goals. You will also see how important data integrity and visibility is across the MRO supply chain to move you to actionable insights and data-driven decisions.

Success Story

Our former solution provider was not independent; they were a supplier of parts. It's not the best thing to have a supplier be your MRO outsourcing provider. With SDI, we have a truly independent sourcing agent looking after our best interests.

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.
