The maintenance spare parts business is in turmoil. There have been fundamental changes in the sales, distribution, and storage of spare parts needed to maintain machinery and other physical assets. The key to uptime in manufacturing is managing risk, and Surviving the Spare Parts Crisis: Maintenance Storeroom and Inventory Control describes how to properly evaluate and manage that risk in the inventory. This work blends the author Joel Levitt s in-depth knowledge and vast experience in training people who face similar problems with their spare parts inventory. The book is designed to give maintenance professionals four essential tools: 1. The knowledge of what leadership sees when they look at inventory; 2. Models that can used to explain and rethink the conventional wisdom; 3. Specific tools to reduce inventory levels, improve service and workflow, optimize space, and plan work; 4. Strategies and actions to effectively implement change. Levitt offers readers a series of assessments to compare their operation to industry leaders. He addresses key concerns of the different maintenance warehouse stakeholders, then teaches how to design, set up, or reconfigure a warehouse, considering the physical and economic issues. Surviving the Spare Parts Crisis strives to fill the gap between the inventory and maintenance worlds, and explains how to sustain improvements along the way.
