From Everest Group: Succeed with MRO Outsourcing

3/18/2012

Outsourcing of Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) to a third-party service provider is now emerging as a credible solution for organizations that would like to offer benefits beyond spend reduction. This in itself can offer savings in the range of 10 to 20 percent. In order to achieve success in outsourcing MRO, organizations need to manage the complexities inherent to the MRO category – highly fragmented spend, lack of technology investments, and involvement of multiple stakeholders.

Success Story

It is important for my MRO supply chain provider to have a general understanding of my business--SDI knows my business from end to end.

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.
