Service Parts Management

Optimizing global service parts supply chains through a combination of technology, analytics and managed services

Challenges

Stocking spare parts inventory to cover service needs over dynamic product life cycles carries significant risk of financial exposure — due to excess and obsolescence on one end to missed SLAs on the other. Companies face capability challenges in several areas that prevent them from optimally managing spare parts demand, inventory and supply:

Supply chain visibility across the service network

Predicting lifecycles of in-warranty and out-of-warranty demand

Optimizing inventory across the service network

Synchronizing new buys, returns and repair

Predicting stock-outs and preventing excess inventory growth
