SDI bolsters repair process management program.

Earlier this month, SDI launched the brand refresh on their specialty asset component-level refurbishment program, now known as RPM.

The program moves beyond simply managing the repair process to performing root-cause failure analysis aimed at:

  • Increasing uptime
  • Improving asset reliability
  • Reducing costs
  • Decreasing carbon footprints through the repair and reuse of asset components

Research shows that typically 10-15% of items that most production facilities throw away are repairable. This represents about a 5% savings against total new item spend.

SDI partners with strategic repair houses as part of the Company's ongoing commitment to help manufacturers enable efficient manufacturing, reliable production and agile operations through more strategic management of MRO. SDI will continue to partner with like-minded suppliers to enhance the RPM program and continue to identify savings opportunities and process improvements that increase the productivity and sustainability in their clients’ production environments.

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

Today's pace of change does not conform to yesterday's methods or business cultures. In this blog post, SDI explores the dynamics of internal colleagues as well as rapid changes in terms of market disruptions and technology advances. 

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.
