For Operations

Keeping you in full operation.

When operations stop, business stops. Profit stops. Your reputation stops. Every hour of every day, the experienced operations professionals at SDI work to prevent that from happening. ‘Equipment uptime’ is your daily mantra, so it’s our daily mantra.

Right part. Right place. Right time.

SDI’s approach to MRO is about each step of the supply chain process being connected to the next step, and the next step. Holistic. Everything working in unison. But when one $20 part fails, we know that ALL you care about is finding and replacing that ONE part – right now. You’re not concerned about obsolete inventories or supplier invoices or Best-in-Class processes. We understand. So our purpose is to ensure you get exactly the parts you need, exactly when you need them, every time.


Overall Equipment Effectiveness is always the operations objective. Equipment is the lifeblood of your operation, so SDI excels at sourcing, pricing, buying and delivering the parts you need to keep equipment running as efficiently and cost-effectively as humanly possible.

The right part – but also the right price.

By leveraging SDI’s buying efficiency across our extensive client base, we can pass powerful savings on to you. But there’s more to SDI than great parts pricing – these savings are in addition to those gleaned from enterprise-wide efficiencies as part of a connected, synced, aligned and transparent MRO process. From supplier consolidation to product standardization.

Success Story

It takes a progressive manager to push the organization to look at indirect spend and managing it in a different way - but once you see it, then you realize the opportunity.

SDI at Work

In the third post in this series on MRO As-a-Service by Spend Matters, Pierre Mitchell and Michael Lamoureux talk about how managing MRO as a process delivers benefits from efficiency to effectiveness and beyond to an evolutionary phase. The next generation of value, MRO-as-a-Service, helps organizations build intelligent, agile, scalable and integrated supply chains (direct and indirect).

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.
