The maintenance spare parts business is in turmoil. There have been fundamental changes in the sale, distribution, and storage of spare parts needed to maintain machinery and other physical assets. The key to uptime in manufacturing is managing risk, and Surviving the Spare Parts Crisis: Maintenance Storeroom and Inventory Control by Joel Levitt describes how to evaluate risk in the inventory. Levitt shares knowledge he has gained over more than 30 years of consulting companies and providing training to professionals who are facing problems with their spare parts inventory. His latest book shows how the maintenance department can provide better support to purchasing agents and buyers. It provides dozens of ideas to properly reduce inventory, reduce usage, and save money in parts, all while maintaining service levels. This text is the only one available that not only covers the conventional wisdom, but also deals with the new realities of today's market space. This is an ideal resource for maintenance managers, planners, and engineers; parts specialists; supply chain managers; and anyone involved in purchasing.
