MRO Services For Finance

Meet Bob.
CFO for a specialty chemical manufacturer.

  • 30 years in corporate finance in the industrial manufacturing space.
  • With the manufacturing process becoming more highly automated and intelligent, Bob is thinking strategically and looking for ways to invest capital back into the plants, expand the company’s market presence, and innovate for growth.
  • He keeps a close watch on the bottom line and sees the costs to run the production lines creeping up quickly.
  • Bob also wants to manage risk and reduce the amount of working capital that is tied up in inventory for maintenance, repairs, and operations.

What Bob Needs.

  • Improved Total Cost of Ownership. In order to improve the total costs to run the plants, Bob needs visibility into the additional costs for maintaining and repairing the equipment, including the MRO supplies, expedited freight, and lost production during emergency shut downs.
  • Smart inventory levels for MRO. The company shouldn’t reorder the maximum quantity of a part that takes more than a year to consume. There has to be a better way.

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

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.
