Who should attend?
Executives, managers, and other Utilities professionals who face economic challenges within asset management; especially for those who have financial responsibility for very expensive and large-scaled MRO inventories, such as in power generation. 

Why attend?
The cost to operate power plants is only rising with higher demands upon production and the price of materials continues to increase over time. In order to minimize the negative impact to consumers, today's asset managers are compelled to manage their MRO spares inventories more effectively than ever before.

MRO inventory managers in utilities are faced with the challenge of managing tens or hundreds of thousands of items, each with their own characteristics, requiring complex and time-consuming calculations. Organizations without optimized inventory run the risk of overpaying and underperforming.

By leveraging technology tools, automated processes and inventory management best practices to optimize MRO spares and consumables, utilities can consistently achieve significant benefits that improve the financial picture, such as up to 50% reduction in unplanned asset downtime, up to 40% reduction in inventory costs, up to 35% savings in maintenance budgets, and up to 25% increase in service levels.

  • Challenging economic issues and pressures by today's asset management teams
  • Best practices for MRO inventory optimization
  • Real success stories around implementing MRO inventory optimization and ROI achieved
