Abstract:This research is conducted at Gordian Logistics Experts in the field of spare parts planning. In particular, we focus on the process of replenishing spare parts inventories and we study the ordering decisions made by planners. The main goal of this assignment was to gain insight into spare parts planning decisions and the root causes of adapting or rejecting generated purchase requisitions by planners. We analysed the current situation at three companies: RET (arranges the public transport of Rotterdam), the Royal Netherlands Navy and IBM. We analysed ordering decisions to determine the key factors and we estimate the impact of intervening. Furthermore, we provide areas for improvement and we provide a priority list of key factors that should be addressed.
