Steps to fully gain control of your spare parts
Basic inventory management is about always having your equipment ready for use and be easy to find. Check out our guide to keep control of your warehouse.
All your vital spare parts should be registered in a WMS (Warehouse management system). Insemito software is a unique tool to manage your equipment for all types of day-to-day operations from service to unforeseen breakdowns. Insemito software will keep track of all your equipment.
The system is ideal to keep record of equipment like;
- Spare parts any kind
- Tools and special tools
- Service containers
- Service kits
- Electrical components
- Lifting equipment
- Service equipment
- Hydraulic and pneumatic tools
- Calibration equipment
- Safety equipment
- Fire equipment
- Chemical equipment
With Insemito we monitor expiry dates and give you warnings before equipment runs out of date, like lifting equipment, calibration equipment, lifetime on components etc.
We upload certificates, documentation, instruction manuals etc. in a simple and effective manner ensuring both technical and office personel possibility to access relevant information.
Meta - (Material master)
The most important thing to manage your equipment is to create Metas. The Meta is a general description for an item, which is essential for all involved parties when ordering, and exchanging parts. Maintain you Meta on a regular basis, which means correct OEM part numbers, manufacturers, vendors, approved service partners etc. The worst thing that can happen is to create inventory inaccuracies because equipment was updated on Meta level or dublets on Meta level was created creating problems on order and exchange level.Having accurate Metas will also make you with scheduled preventive maintenance (PM) more effective as parts can be ordered and exchanged fast and effective with less downtime. Creating Metas should only be carried out by a few skilled persons with the right skills to maintain records for equipment.
Optimize work order process
Having created a strong spare part registration on both Meta and Item level will make it possible to maintain an effective work order process. Develop a work order process that is not overly complicated but ensures that all necessary information is passed along. If it is too complicated or there are ways to get spare parts without a work order, you will find employees not using the desired process and inventory inaccuracies begin to occur. Have a process where non-emergency work orders are placed in advance. Work orders requested in advance can be pulled and staged for pickup or delivered to the requesting department. See also the Insemito spare part kit set up which can help you plan long time in advanvce.
Ensure that effective security measures are taken in the warehouse. Several critical practices should be considered. Limiting access to the warehouse inventory is crucial to maintaining inventory accuracy. Adopt a policy that parts inventories are “off limits” and only relevant employees have access to company spare parts. One way is to insure this is to adopt physical security measures such as parts counters that prevent employees from entering inventory stock locations and pulling parts required. Allowing everyone to have access can quickly make parts inventories inaccurate.
Centralize and consolidate parts
Where possible, centralize and consolidate satellite parts inventory into your main parts warehouse. Having all your parts centralized and consolidated can make security easier but also makes this potentially large asset easier to control and maintain inventory accuracy. As a unique feature take a minute to learn more of the service kit/container management module, which is integrated in Insemito.
Location of equipment
Ensure that stock locations are created at the lowest detail (typically a bin and slot location for each item). It can be difficult for employees to locate a part if the location identifier is a shelf where many other parts are in a shared location. By instituting the above recommendations, you will be able to have better control over your parts inventory and provide faster and accurate fulfillment of work orders and other parts requests. For global coverage, Insemito can also be combined with GPS tracking tools and RFID tools, for more information about this feature contact support.
