MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) Optimization and spare-parts management has been left forgotten for the most part by the Manufacturing industry for a long time. In the face of growing complexity, conflicting departmental interests, and inadequate ERP systems, companies have turned their back on this issue. But today’s growing digital maturity, regulatory push, and opportunities brought by machine learning & A.I. have reignited organizational interest in finally tackling their MRO challenges head on.
In this episode, we sit down with Laurent Chavagne, current Head of Procurement at IESA and MRO consultant with more than 25 years of experience, to talk about how the world of Supply Chain and Procurement has evolved in the last decades and where it is headed due to current and future developments.
We deep-dive into the main challenges that Supply Chain and Procurement departments face and what benefits they can reap by optimizing MRO and reducing complexity. As well as why ERP systems lag behind Data & A.I. solutions when trying to solve these issues. If you want to learn how you can reduce complexity in your Procurement or Supply Chain departments with the use of data and machine learning, then tune in to this episode of the A.I. Journey.
