The purpose of a storeroom is simple – to optimize maintenance and productivity by ensuring the right part is available at the right time, every time. This requires flawless storeroom operations to ensure inventory accuracy and availability. With this guiding principle, SDI’s team of experienced strategists consulted with industry experts and Fortune 100 companies to identify the criteria that define successful storeroom operations.
Together, we isolated 59 specific touchpoints across 5 key areas and created a powerful tool to effectively measure a company’s baseline storeroom operations. This one-of-a-kind, industry tested and vetted methodology evaluates current practices and provides a numerical rating to benchmark performance and identify opportunities for improvement. From there, we provide tailored guidance to reach best-in-class status.
Rather than focusing solely on parts, SDI takes a holistic approach to MRO supply chain management that provides the best total cost of ownership and value beyond product price reductions.
