ISM Invites SDI to Host Discussion

11/13/2012

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM)  has invited SDI to facilitate a roundtable discussion on ‘Services to Improve MRO Effectiveness’ at the December ISM Services Conference being held in Phoenix, AZ on December 6th and 7th.    Missy Decker, Vice President of Business Development and an employee at SDI for over 31 years, will facilitate the discussion.

The discussion will be limited to 10 people per break out group and will focus on the challenges faced by participants regarding MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operating) services in their organization as well as the successes that they have experienced.

Success Story

SDI is an MRO integrator and partner that really helps drive categorization and a best practice approach.

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.
