Webinar: 8 Reasons Why Spare Parts Inventory Management is Different

This free webinar is presented in association with the University of Kansas.

webinarHere is the summary:

Many conventions of spare parts inventory management are different from those of the usual supply chain and inventory management.

The classic supply chain theory (and most training) is based on what can be called a “retail model,” the model most often associated with retail management and fast-moving consumer goods.

This free webinar from globally recognized consultant Phillip Slater will introduce 8 ways in which the inventory management of spare parts held for maintenance and operations is different to the standard “retail model.”

All the details are available to the KU registration page.

best practiceWhat constitutes best practice?

How do you know if what you do, or are advised to do, will make you a leader in the field, or even make any difference at all?

What are the few things that you should focus on to get the best return on your investment of time and money?

These questions are at the heart of understanding best practices.

To find the answers, Phillip Slater, Spare Parts Management Specialist and Founder of SparePartsKnowHow.com, surveyed hundreds of storerooms over a period of years.

Phillip was able to differentiate between the high and low performers and identify seven practices that high performers execute better and more consistently than everyone else.

Replacing heavy equipment parts

Some of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make in your business come when your heavy equipment parts start to break down. Do you look to buy new heavy equipment, or do you work on replacing heavy equipment parts? Your decision could have a major impact on your bottom line.

You should first try to find how much replacing the part will actually cost you, so you have some numbers to compare. Look at construction equipment for sale compared to new and used heavy equipment parts for sale, and you’ll start to get a better idea of the situation you are in. If a major component part breaks down on an older machine, you may find that the cost to replace is too high.

On the other hand, getting new, used, or aftermarket parts from a reputable dealer can help save you a lot of money and extend the lifespan of your equipment. Having access to a place you can trust to get quality parts can be a huge help for your business, as it allows you to more cheaply and easily get your equipment back up and running if something goes wrong. At SINTRA, we offer new and used heavy equipment parts for sale from all of the leading brands, so you can find exactly what you need for your machine.

When making the decision, it helps to have qualified service representatives to help you find the best solution. Our service team works our customers all across the Southeast, helping you make the right decision for your business. We can also help you narrow down your search to find the part you need at the best possible price. Contact us today to learn more and walk through your situation.

Having the right part is only half the battle, of course. You also need to be able to properly install it to get your machine back at full capacity. Our service and maintenance teams can help with that, whether it is diagnosing what is wrong with your construction equipment or helping it run again. With a commitment to expertise, we earn your trust through our quality work.
