Synovos maintenance planning and coordination increases MRO maintenance reliability and productivity.
Synovos examines the interaction of your MRO supply chain, storeroom operations, maintenance, and planning. We study the demand drivers for parts – criticality, lead time, etc. – and the impact across your organization, boring into the actual work plans specifying what parts need to be delivered to which location. And we take it a step further, looking at each of those elements and the impact they have on the overall supply chain and asset reliability.
By assessing material flow through the entire supply chain and labor utilization, we identify inefficiencies within and across departments. Those inefficiencies create barriers preventing storeroom operations from working in tandem with maintenance, scheduling, procurement and others, to minimize lost time and maximize wrench time. We offer recommendations on removing those barriers to minimize lost production time and maximize wrench time.
Before Synovos we had weekly and even daily stock-outs - expedited freight and machinery down. We have experienced only three stock-outs in the last 13 months.
What makes our services different?
Our services create efficiency opportunities for your maintenance department by moving toward a preventative, or even predictive maintenance program, instead of the firefighting reactive approach.
Armed with an understanding of current processes and demand drivers, Synovos delivers a transformative custom plan to realize seamless operations within and across departments, improve labor efficiency, ensure material availability and ultimately enhance plant reliability.
A general manufacturing company located in the Midwest detected a rapid increase in the cost of MRO inventory associated with its production lines. The sharp cost increase was both surprising and confusing. The company deployed Synovos’ storeroom operations program at two of its five production sites to better control MRO inventory, improve purchasing power, and accent the company’s drive for continuous improvement.
