Operational Integration of Maintenance and Supply

Date: Monday, December 7, 2015
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
Location: North 129 AB

Objective: Highlight issues and actions with respect to the integration of maintenance and supply functions to enhance readiness and efficiency

Abstract: There is a readiness and financial risk associated with the misalignment between maintenance and supply functions. Backordered parts from underestimating demand pose a readiness risk while excess parts from overestimating strains our fiscal resources. Improving maintenance forecast accuracy, and communicating a more precise requirement within the supply chain will reduce both the readiness and financial risks. This session will explore the issues and associated actions to more accurately increase the alignment of maintenance and supply chain to enhance readiness and efficiency.
