About Storeroom and Warehouse Services

Slow moving and obsolete (SLOB) MRO inventory is a real-world issue for many businesses. SDI’s storeroom management solutions prevent SLOB– we focus on ensuring compliance with MRO policies, procedures, and storeroom management best practices. We also provide timely reporting about usage patterns by product, by individual, and by department. This is our world. We know how to offer help.

Storeroom Solutions: A Roadmap to Best in Class

The purpose of a storeroom, simply, is to optimize maintenance and productivity by having the right part at the right time…every time…which requires flawless storeroom operations to ensure inventory accuracy and availability. With that 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 an extremely powerful tool to effectively measure a company’s baseline level of
operation. This one-of-a-kind, industry tested and vetted methodology evaluates current storeroom operations and provides you with a baseline numerical rating of your operations – so you’ll know exactly where you stand. From there, we’ll tell you exactly how to get where you’re going. Destination: Best-in-Class.

Instead of focusing solely on parts, SDI’s holistic approach to MRO supply chain management focuses on providing the best total cost of ownership for you, providing value far beyond product price reductions.

Starting with our proprietary, MRO storeroom assessment, we work closely with our clients to determine the optimal storeroom solutions.

Factors include:

  • Production and maintenance schedules
  • Number of SKUs to be managed
  • Number of storerooms
  • Activity per shift
  • The overall projected scope of work

The better our understanding of your goals and objectives, the more effective our storeroom solutions are for your operation.

Storeroom Projects

SDI offers several storeroom services that will deliver productivity, cost and uptime improvements. An efficient and organized storeroom reduces mechanics’ time searching and shopping for parts and is the foundation for more efficient storeroom operating models like the pick-pack-and-deliver model.

Project services to improve storeroom management include:

  • Data capture: A team of SDI experts collects your data and establishes a baseline on all SKUs in the storeroom, enabling visibility into usage and purchase trends and allowing you to more effectively leverage your MRO spend.
  • Storeroom set up: SDI experts remove excess and obsolete inventory from the storeroom, adapt the lay out to obtain maximum efficiency in product delivery and manage the change process throughout.
  • Storeroom maintenance project: For organizations that need to relocate or add a new production line, this on-demand storeroom service re-aligns the storeroom levels to provide inventory monitoring, min/max definition and control and lead-time management.
