White Paper 1 – A Guide to Efficient MRO Procurement & Management

Executive Summary
The purchasing and management of production-critical spares is a vital function in any manufacturing business. If managed correctly, it offers major opportunities for companies to reduce cost, enhance processes and ultimately deliver best practice. This paper looks at how a collaborative approach involving both procurement professionals and key production and maintenance colleagues can deliver major benefits to both operational effectiveness and profitability.

White Paper 2 – The Importance of Total Cost of Ownership in MRO

Executive Summary
When looking to reduce costs, many manufacturing companies will choose to buy maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) spares based solely on lowest initial purchase price, only to discover that the direct and indirect costs throughout that product’s lifecycle, in terms of acquisition, operating maintenance and production costs, far outweigh any initial savings. In this White Paper, Brammer explain that while a reduction in price may offer an immediate, short-term gain, this is far outweighed by the financial and operational benefits of purchasing based on total cost of ownership.
