Point of View:
Why decentralized, non-network-oriented spare parts planning is leading to a dead end.

An efficient spare parts planning process not only determines the efficiency of a global spare parts organization and the success of the after-sales service, but it is also an important driver for the company’s operating margin. Also, after-sales performance often influences the future buying decisions of existing customers. In essence: if customers are happy with the service, they will buy again.

The role of spare parts planning is to comply with the delivery dates required by the end-customer. Inventory costs and logistic costs should be kept as low as possible to maximize the degree of efficiency of the planning process. This means a continuous balancing of customer expectations across the distribution network with the associated process costs for the after-sales logistics manager.

What you will take out of this.

An efficient spare parts planning determines the efficiency of a global spare parts organization and the success of the after-sales service. It’s also a vital driver for operating margin.
