  8. Guest Series Part Four: Measuring Inventory Management Success
    11/19/2009
    When it comes to managing MRO (maintenance, repair, and operations) inventory using RFID, the answer to the question, "How do you know when you’ve reached your goal?" can be elusive. Just as managing tool and MRO inventory is sometimes forgotten during the pace of everyday business, measuring what makes a successful tool and MRO management program can also be overlooked. Often, we go down the road of improving our MRO management because we simply know we aren't doing a very good job. We forget to benchmark, we neglect to set measurement tactics, and we lack an understanding of all the areas of possible impact. If we start without an overall understanding and measurable information, how can we gauge success? By Robert Holmes, WinWare, Inc.
