Spare Parts Inventory Management
Inventory management from KSB: improved availability and reduced inventory costs
With its inventory management service, KSB provides recommendations for maintaining optimum spare parts stocks and preventing excess stocks or shortages of spare parts.
Do you have your spare parts inventory planned out for the next two years? KSB does!
System availability and system efficiency depend – among other things – on the availability of spare parts. Ensuring spare parts are in stock when required can therefore be very expensive for many companies. One way of minimising costs is to stock only as many spare parts as are actually necessary. KSB’s inventory management supports this process.
KSB’s first step in optimising your inventory management is to assess your pump population. On this basis, recommended spare parts stocks are calculated for two years of operation in accordance with the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association). KSB then cross-checks your needs against an interchangeability analysis to confirm if and when the same component can be interchangeably used across a range of different pump sizes. Having established your spare parts requirements, KSB then determines your optimal spare parts stocking strategy.
