Prevent Needless Expenditures with WebRUSL 3.1


The main focus of many organizations is to simply manage costs by minimizing inventory levels; this often comes at the expense of increasing the overall costs incurred through poor maintenance productivity.  The process of getting the right parts at the right time is fairly complex, but if we stop and think about the smaller components and tasks that go into materials management, we might see that many of these components are in themselves fairly simple and straightforward.  If we focus on improving the individual components and making sure they work together well (integration), there is a good chance that significant improvement can be achieved.  Changing our view of lowest cost to lowest total cost will pay significant dividends.  WebRUSL 3.1 sets stock levels for slow moving, rarely used parts and delivers insight into how to gain control over and better manage the storeroom. The WebRUSL service helps demonstrate the alignment between parts expenditures and reduced downtime.  It also prevents needless purchases and supports economic investment recovery decisions.

Minimum Benefits Analysis

Our FREE, no obligation, Minimum Benefits Analysis (MBA) demonstrates how much you can potentially save within your MRO inventory.  Our proprietary software identifies which of these "just-in-case" items are overstocked and likely to be replenished. With our FREE Minimum Benefits Analysis, we can tell you how much can be saved on your MRO inventory, the timeframe in which the savings will occur and the minimal resources required from you to benefit from WebRUSL.


IRIX (Investment Recovery Matrix)

Once operations and maintenance have agreed on the appropriate maximum quantity for a stock item, what to do with any surplus is primarily a financial decision. Essentially, the question is: “Would you rather keep a part on the shelf for many years before it may be needed or would you rather have some additional money in the bank now and assume the risk of having to buy a replacement later at a higher price?”


Probability and Risk

"Two risks are inherent in any stocking decision- the risk of getting caught short and the risk of getting caught long. The end objective is to get a balanced inventory, one with neither too much overstocking nor too much understocking."

MRG offers a unique service to identify your risky MRO purchases.  Our analysts provide a list of high-risk purchases which are likely to occur during the next year or two and that are already programmed in your current system.
