Storeroom Management

We know our customer’s main concern is keeping their operation running. And having the right parts in the storeroom at the right time is critical. That’s where we come in. For over 50 years we have been helping our customers manage their stores items, bringing to the table not only our expertise of managing the multi-million dollar inventory within our own company, but the experience of our business partners as well. Whether it’s the critical spares for MRO or the required components for an OEM, Erie Bearings can help develop a program that’s right for you. Our Storeroom Solutions include:

  • Storeroom Inventory Audit
  • Elimination of Duplicated SKUs
  • Inventory Reduction
  • OEM Part Identification
  • Storeroom Reorganization
  • Identification and Disposal of Obsolete and Excess Items
  • Continuous Usage/Stock Analysis

And we can go one step further. We’ve developed a web-based storeroom solution that provides the technology to keep the storeroom inventory accurate and up-to-date without having to dedicate a person to the job. It’s called The SMART System. Designed to get the maintenance person in and out of the storeroom quickly, the SMARTSystem utilizes barcode technology and includes a multitude of reports to let you know what you have, what you’ve used, and where you’ve used it.

Think SMART

In a recent survey of manufacturers, 98 percent reported having experienced lost production or extended downtime due to storeroom stock-outs. 82 percent believe that their existing storeroom management procedures could be improved to prevent future downtime. The SMART system is the answer.

Choose SMART

The decision to implement the SMART System is more than smart. It’s a decision that shows that you value an efficient, effective, organized workplace. Specifically, the SMART System allows you to:

  • Decrease stock-outs
  • Decrease NDA shipments
  • Increase uptime
  • Search database for storeroom part location
  • Identify and eliminate duplications
  • Generate inventory reports
  • Analyze inventory automatically
  • Track MRO cost per machine
