“To optimize production SDI’s team of experienced Strategists consulted with industry experts and Fortune 100 companies to identify the criteria that define successful storeroom operations. Together we isolated 59 specific touch points across 5 key areas and created an extremely powerful tool to effectively measure a company’s baseline of operation,” stated Chris Moore, Executive Vice President of Field Operations.
Based off of the 5 key areas of storeroom organization; inventory set-up, inventory metrics, maintenance processes and inventory processes, the evaluation tool provides a baseline numerical rating of operations. Once implemented, the SDI team typically takes less than a day to grade the storeroom on a scale of 100 with 90%+ to quality for Best in Class status.
After evaluation, the company is provided with a roadmap to take the storeroom to Best in Class status within 12 months. The value achieved through Best in Class storeroom operations is optimized productivity and equipment effectiveness.
Most recently, one client started with a baseline rating of 33% and increased to a score of 70% in just 8 weeks after evaluation. Continuing to use the tool this client is on track to achieve Best in Class status within 12 months.
Benchmarking time for MRO storerooms is often complex, time consuming, and expensive. With extensive research over the last 6 months, covering 59 touch points across 5 areas of a storeroom, the new evaluation tool from SDI is easy to use and guaranteed to help companies achieve Best in Class status.
