Best Practices to Increase Efficiency and Productivity while Reducing MRO Spend

As Reliability Engineers, we are tasked to consistently improve an operation and life cycle of systems. Many of the improvements are derived from changes in materials we add or remove from the identified system. These materials are referred to as MRO or Indirect Spend. MRO costs can add up to a significant portion of expenses for a business.

Unfortunately, this is the cost a business pays to remain in operation. Without spare parts and other associated materials, operations would cease to exist. Reliability Engineers can focus on these expenses that will improve the bottom line. This paper will focus on what MRO is, and provide examples and case histories of successful Continuous Improvement projects that reduce MRO costs and improve Reliability.

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.
