The goal of Spare Parts Optimization is to maximize Operational Availability whilst minimizing Life Cycle Costs.
With this in mind, one of our customers recently asked:
The budgets of our customers are being continually slashed, yet they still want and need the same level of spare parts support. Is there a way of using Spares Calculator to help them spend their money more wisely so that they get the best spare parts ranging and scaling package within their budget?
This is a good question and the answer is obviously yes, but you need to be careful that you don’t end up being pressurized into promising unrealistic service levels. Here are some ideas that might help you achieve the same levels of risk at a reduced cost.
