About Storeroom and Warehouse Management Services

SDI offers a comprehensive suite of storeroom and warehouse inventory management services that help improve supply chain efficiency, reduce costs, and improve uptime. Our Inventory Management solution combines intelligent technology, intellectual capital, and supply chain expertise to drive to optimum customer inventory levels while minimizing, even eliminating, future occurrence of obsolete inventories and stock-outs.

Storeroom Management

Managing slow-moving and obsolete (SLOB) inventory is a common challenge for many companies. Our storeroom management solutions help prevent the accumulation of SLOB inventory by focusing on compliance with maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) policies, procedures, and storeroom management best practices. We also provide timely reporting on usage patterns by product, individual, and department.

Best-in-Class Inventory Management Operations

Whether you use a storeroom, a stock room, a warehouse, or truck stock – the purpose is simple – to optimize maintenance and productivity by ensuring the right part is available at the right place, 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.

Storeroom Assessment and Layout

Rather than focusing solely on parts, SDI takes a holistic approach to FM and MRO supply chain management that provides the best total cost of ownership and value beyond product price reductions.

We start with our proprietary MRO storeroom assessment to determine optimal solutions based on factors such as:

  • Production and maintenance schedules
  • Number of SKUs
  • Number of storerooms
  • Activity per shift
  • Overall projected scope

Understanding your unique goals and objectives allows us to deliver maximally effective storeroom solutions customized for your operations.
