MRO and Spare Parts Management Considerations
The need for better service parts management is finally gaining top-level management attention in many aerospace and defense (A&D) and like complex manufacturing companies, since excessive carrying costs and obsolescence losses are being recognized as an unexploited opportunity for savings and a better bottom line performance
: security. Also, an effective preventive maintenance program can improve equipment utilization and availability, enabling production schedules to be achieved, especially when an exorbitantly expensive equipment replacement is a no option during depressed economic times. Therefore, A&D companies require an ever broader suite of functionality ranging from a strong engineering foundation and customer service front end to support demand management, all bundled with a set of administrative and reporting

Get in the Loop with Closed-Loop Diagnostics and Unlock the Door to Profitable Maintenance
US companies spend approximately $300 billion (USD) annually on asset maintenance and operations, with 80 percent going to fixing asset failures. This situation can now be drastically improved with the advent of enterprise asset management (EAM) solutions that incorporate closed-loop diagnostics. This best-of-breed maintenance functionality extends the boundaries of traditional software by providing specialized failure analysis features that are fully integrated with core business processes. This paper examines how EAM solutions can support closed-loop diagnostics to provide a number of significant benefits.
