Reliability Based Spare Parts and Materials Management Training

When asked to describe the largest issue they face in organizing maintenance work, many planners and supervisors reply "Finding materials and getting them to the right place at the right time."

Maintenance materials are a large part of any plant's maintenance costs and not having the right materials in the right place at the right time is a common cause of productivity loss and reduced reliability.  This unique seminar provides real solutions to maintenance Storeroom management problems. Bring your management team from Maintenance, the Maintenance Storeroom, Purchasing and IT and you'll take away tools and knowledge to dramatically improve your spare parts and supplies management.  We deliver our spare parts management classes in several formats, the most common are:

  • On-site customized spare parts management training
  • On-site and Public standard training

On-site customized Spare Parts Management Training

An IDCON consultant will visit your site to collect information about your current spare parts and materials work practices, collect example, take photos, and discuss content and attendees with you.  After the visit, the consultant will return to IDCON's offices to customize the training to your needs in order to deliver the training to your site a few weeks later.

On-Site and Public Standard Training

IDCON offers our reliability based spare parts management training on-site in your plant, or you can visit one of our public training seminars.  You will find schedules and locations here.
