Materials Management for Maintenance Overview

Maintenance organizations need the right material, in the proper quantity, at the right time. If these basic conditions are not met, your maintenance effort will be ineffective. In this era of downsized industrial operations, careless material accountability is not an option. Companies typically have several hundred to several million dollars worth of parts in a maintenance storeroom, "just in case". This is clearly a very costly practice.

The availability of better data and refined control measures will help. In addition, maintenance and material control personnel have a joint responsibility and plant profitability. These days, they have no choice but to work together. Making maintenance resources more productive requires effective planning methods, organizational structures and techniques for optimum management and control of maintenance inventory.

Materials Management for Maintenance Seminar Content

Introduction to World Class Inventory Management

In order to understand where you need to be, it’s important first to understand where you are; in this topic we’ll discuss the current state of the typical maintenance storeroom, and give a brief overview of the 15 tactical and the 9 strategic best practices

Tactical Processes

“Tactical” Processes are the foundation of any MRO Storeroom operation; without them, it is difficult, if not impossible, to maintain an effective and efficient storeroom; this topic provides a more detailed review of the key Tactical Processes...
  • New Item Set-Up
  • ABC Classification
  • Cycle Counting
  • Obsolescence
  • Kitting
  • Purchasing
  • Materials Lay-Up Program

Strategic Practices

Once the basic processes of materials management are in place and consistently followed, the next step to a World Class Storeroom Operation are the “Strategic” Processes...
  • Data Scrubbing
  • Critical Spares
  • Vendor Managed Inventory
  • Reorder Point/EOQ/OOR
  • Problem Solving

Optimization of Operations

Optimizing your Storeroom Operations takes the storeroom into the next realm of efficiency...
  • 5S
  • Equipment Bill of Materials
  • CMMSs
  • Storeroom Layout
  • Barcoding
  • RFID

Storeroom Metrics

Track your progress through key storeroom metrics...
  • Inventory Turns
  • Inventory Turns
  • Inventory Accuracy
  • Etc.


In this last topic, we'll have extensive discussion and creation of a “future state” model; creating Responsible, Accountable, Support, Inform (RASI) charts [Responsible, Accountable, Support (Communicate), Informed]; Step Definitions, etc. that you’ll be able to take back to begin your journey toward a Sustainable World Class Storeroom Operation!
