Inventory Management Technology

The system is proprietary. The results are revolutionary.

The tighter your MRO inventory management, the smoother your overall MRO program. On the flip side, purely reactive inventory management solutions can equal lost profits.

Forecasting for MRO requires more than simple min/max ordering methods that don't account for the dynamic nature of your business. SDI’s process includes diligent consideration of variables and thorough data analysis to develop a carefully crafted strategy specific to your business needs.

MRO inventory management facts:

  • 55% of MRO inventories have not moved in the past 3 years
  • 30% of MRO inventories currently in stock will never be used
  • 65% of the items you purchased this year, you won’t purchase next year

We've developed a specialized solution to this age-old inventory problem:

How our inventory management solution sets us apart from the rest.

Intelligent inventory management technology- the proof is in the massive savings.

The inventory management module of ZEUS drives inventories to optimal levels while improving service levels.

Using our inventory management solution, our clients have:

  • Reduced inventories by 20% to 40%
  • Increased service levels to 98% or higher

Bottom line: smaller, more efficient inventories mean big savings by reducing administration and carrying costs, yet all the while increasing service levels.

Our inventory management technology protects the future of your business.

In addition to lowering active inventory levels, SDI reduces future build-ups. Our MRO inventory management service alerts managers to opportunities that reduce excess build-up. This is done by quickly identifying parts with significantly reduced usage, eliminating the growth of obsolete inventory.

Over-utilized parts are also identified, and our experts generate a root cause analysis that determines if a machine needs maintenance or an employee needs additional training.

Optimizing inventory management from every angle.

Many companies look at the inventory management process from just one point of view. But an effective inventory management solution is holistic in its approach; utilizing top-of-the-line inventory management technology and looking at all possible areas to help cut costs and clean up processes.

SDI at Work

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
