Traditionally viewed as a high-cost, low-value indirect supply chain by manufacturers and suppliers, Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) operations are increasingly being seen as an area in which companies can realize greater efficiency and profitability.
In order to achieve these business benefits, however, MRO providers must be able to overcome significant supply chain challenges by:
-Optimizing utilization of resources and inventory.
-Delivering superior speed, reliability, and quality of service for customers.
-Ensuring compliance with industry standards and regulations.
-Attaining end-to-end supply chain integration and agility.
On a day-to-day basis, MRO providers need to be able to effectively manage the dizzying complexity of shop floor operations, cater to the specific, customized job requirements of each piece of equipment and machinery, and rapidly respond to sudden changes in demand and capacity.
By implementing ICRON’s advanced planning and scheduling (APS) platform, MRO providers can optimize their operations, minimize costs, and maximize productivity and profits.
With ICRON, MRO providers can:
-Gain real-time visibility and control over shop floor operations and capacity.
-Automatically generate optimal production plans and schedules in a matter of seconds, and update and adjust them to accommodate unexpected shifts in demand and capacity.
-Improve the accuracy of delivery forecasting and completion dates – thereby increasing customer satisfaction.
-Conduct what-if scenario analysis to eliminate bottlenecks and determine the best long-term strategic plans.
-Ensure compliance with industry standards and regulations.
-Improve resource and inventory utilization, parts procurement, and overall productivity.
-Reduce repair turnaround time and operating costs.
