ABB's Parts Fingerprint service identifies cost saving opportunities and improves overall spares management
ABB has announced the release of Parts Fingerprint, a spare parts management optimization service for critical ABB process automation systems and products, such as control systems, instrumentation, drives and other critical ABB systems.
The Parts Fingerprint reviews the effectiveness of existing spare parts management practices and identifies potential risk associated with insufficient stock, over stock, out-of-date inventory and end of lifecycle issues.
The service includes an on-site spare parts inventory validation and comprehensive analysis of stock conditions, status, stocking levels, version management, warranty management, part criticality and historical parts usage. Existing processes and conditions are compared with ABB established best practices.
The resulting fingerprint evaluation report includes recommendations to improve overall spares management including cost saving strategies, and management of issues related to equipment lifecycle status and equipment supportability.
