Results-driven Decision-making for Supply Chain Since 1971


MRO Sector

Supply Chain Planning for MRO can be one of the most complex endeavors. Common challenges include: long lead times, high cost parts, multiple sources for the same part, sporadic and low-volume part usage patterns, and requirements/ preferences of OEM vs PMA parts, among others. GAINS® (General Adaptive INventory Solution) has functions to not only help address these challenges, but will optimize the solutions to them.

Some of these functions include independent demand forecasting, item supersession, inventory classification, constrained service level optimization (CSLO), BOM planning, part/repair process optimization. GAINS will help to meet requirements on budget and on time, increase service parts sales, ensure repair parts availability, lower operating costs, increase service parts sales, reduce expediting and carrying costs, and increase service levels.
