Spare Parts and MRO
MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Operations) businesses have a hard time planning their inventory. Customers focus on maximizing equipments' uptime. The MRO supplier has to make sure spare parts are available to face any type of maintenance while keeping stock levels under control.

Predict your future demand
Forecasting is the cornerstone of MRO businesses. This is where everything starts.
It is crucial to determine how many spare parts you need based on maintenance event, location and equipment type for both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance.
This can all be swiftly computed with frePPLe's demand forecasting module.
Most contracts for unscheduled maintenance events are based on service level agreements (SLA) between MRO suppliers and their customers. You really want to get out of an AOG (Aircraft on Ground) situation fast.
FrePPLe computes a safety stock based on your forecast history and the service level you want to provide.
This allows you to respect your contracts while keeping inventory levels under control.
In frePPLe, you can create products segments to which you apply diverse business rules on top of your inventory policies.
You're then able to fine-tune your service levels management while respecting your safety stock, and, by extension, the agreement with your customers.
Kitting, bundling, and co-packing requests are frequent when you deal with spare parts. They are impossible to handle with planning spreadsheets.
With frePPLe, you work it out within seconds. You know exactly where to find how many products to assemble the number of kits or bundles you need.
Cut on Overstock
With frePPLe, you can manage excess or obsolete inventory items.
Identifying stock in a location where it is either not required anymore or in excess is common for a MRO businesses.
Transhipments (or stock rebalancing) allows you to dispatch no longer needed inventory or inventory in abundance to locations where it is needed.
