Timely tips to keep your material handling equipment (MHE)—and DC—running smoothly
Having the right parts at the right time can keep DCs running at peak performance and make the greatest impact upon productivity. And since about 50 percent of all maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) budgets are spent on spare parts, the manner by which you identify, purchase and store the replacements also can influence how much DC operations contribute to achieving your organization’s financial objectives.
 
In this article, readers will learn seven steps to expedite planned maintenance and prevent prolonged, unexpected outages, including:
 
  1. Establishing a system to track warehouse parts inventory
  2. Asking OEMs to list recommended spare parts
  3. Estimating and budget for realistic parts costs
  4. Organizing how parts are stored
  5. Regularly updating on-site inventory
  6. Choosing trusted vendors, not lowest-cost parts
  7. Thoroughly training maintenance teams
