SDI Announces "Go Live" on MOM Brands Maintenance, Repair and Operations Business Process Outsourcing Solution

9/4/2014

SDI, the leading provider of Enterprise MRO Supply Chain Management Services in North America, recently announced that MOM Brands has awarded the company a five-year contract to provide a BPO solution for MRO, helping America’s largest family-owned cereal company to optimize their MRO supply chain to deliver the best strategic outcomes. The solution includes data management, demand planning, sourcing and supplier relations, buying and transaction services, engineering services, inventory optimization and on-site storeroom management services—optimized with innovative MRO-specific technology to work in synchronization with the rest of the organization.
With MRO-focused resources and an enterprise model designed to align to each phase of the client’s supply chain, SDI will help MOM Brands become more innovative in the way they approach the maintenance, repair and operations of their manufacturing supply chain and processes.
MOM Brands is a strategic client for SDI, illustrating the shift in the industry from viewing MRO as a non-core, indirect spend item to viewing it more as a supply chain that enables their core operations.

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.
