The Problem with Spare Parts Inventory
The major problem with spare parts inventory is that if you don’t do anything, the situation just gets worse. Inventory levels continue to build. You continue to have stock outs that impact operational performance. And obsolete inventory just grows and grows.
Phillip’s work covers all the major issues:
- excess inventory
- poor availability
- critical spares
- inventory accuracy
- slow moving inventory
- obsolete inventory
- managing repairable items

What is Wrong With the Traditional Approach to Spare Parts Management?
For asset-intensive organizations the traditional approach to spare parts management is flawed because they rely on retail and manufacturing inventory management techniques.
As a result their experience with spare parts inventory is that reduction and optimization efforts are either short-lived or stall completely.
This happens even when they have expensive ERP software and/or have purchased similarly expensive, so-called, optimization software.
The main reasons for this is that they have:
- Not identified the real issues that limit and constrain their progress
- Not trained their team in the specifics of spare parts management, which is different from regular inventory management
- Not modified their spare parts management policies to deliver sustainable results (or they don’t even have relevant policies!)
Lasting success requires that these issues be addressed.
