Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO), consists of all pieces of equipment that organizations use to produce end-products. MRO costs can be very high if a machine falters, because it also leads to downtime. On the other hand, many tail-end parts are replaceable and can be standardized with better alternatives. Having the right spare parts at the right time is critical for production processes. MRO purchasing is normally a painful and labour-intensive procedure. However, manufacturers can take matters in their own hands by taking control of their MRO data. Achieve substantial savings, and reduce complexity by taking lead of your own supply chain.
In this whitepaper, we will explore what is MRO, what are the biggest challenges and which three departments struggle and can potentially benefit the most out of proper MRO management.
