January Meeting – Case Study: Creating a Spare Parts Purchase List with Confidence – 01/10/18

Find out how you can save millions of dollars in having the right spares at the right time in your facility

As anyone with a hand in running a household knows, it’s important to keep a stockpile of key items. You certainly don’t want to find out the hard way that you’re on your last square of toilet paper. But in the case of a facility like a power plant, a missing spare part could be more than just a nuisance—it could be downright expensive.

Determining the appropriate spare parts to have on hand in a large facility, however, can be tricky. Most organizations deal with this in one of two ways: 1) they guess or 2) they purchase according to a spares list provided by an equipment vendor.

Through a case study, I would present how ARMS Reliability takes the guesswork out of developing a critical spares list, taking into account item costs, the likelihood of failure, lead times, downtime costs, and all other relevant factors.
