In a typical spare parts inventory network to be supported there will always be part numbers for which operational reliability parameter values turn out to be significantly different (and in particular worse) compared to prevailing data. To manage this, the D-SIMSPAIR Field Parameter Adjustment function can be run on a regular basis with the latest part request, repair or re-order event data that can be uploaded from the Master Data Module at any time.
Field Parameter Adjustment
Inventory Outage Alert
The Inventory Outage Alert function comprises continuous monitoring of the number of units in the repair/re-order cycle and identifies part numbers that are understocked. For such part numbers, the User can determine and manage the incremental risk of outage.
Redistribution of Serviceable Spares
The Redistribution of Serviceable Spares (RSS) function aims to avoid as much as possible situations where spare parts are available but not at the right location.
The Scrap Analysis function comprises a step-by-step approach in showing the User the impact of either non-procurement and procurement of spares to replace scrapped units.
Spare Parts Inventory Planning and Optimisation
These use cases comprise all functions around Initial Provisioning, Homebase Adjustment, Fleet Evolution Analysis, Sales Campaign and Multi-Location Inventory Optimisation.
Expendables Settings Adjustment
The Expendables Settings Adjustment function determines the optimal values for Economic Order Quantities (EOQ) and Re-order Points (ROP) based on various operational parameters.
