  • What is the part?
  • How critical is it to plant operation?
  • What is its usage pattern?
  • Is the part high usage? Low usage? Seasonal usage?
  • What does the part cost? Is the part high cost? Low cost?
  • Is there a discount for volume order?
  • What is the part’s stock out impact?
  • How expensive is the downtime?
  • How long will the downtime last?
  • What is the part’s lead time?
  • How long does delivery take after the part is ordered?
