Project Description

This course is designed to provide delegates with all updated information and skills on material classification, specifications, handling and storage. It covers all material basics and relative detailed engineering specifications, brand name specifications and commercial standards; inventory basics for stock activity graphs, dual re-order points and inventory automation economic orders, quantity (EOQ), inventory control; spare parts lists and spare optimization; and equipment spares.

Why attend

Completing this course, delegates will be able to apply demand planning for equipment spare parts and supply chain management; employ warehouse procedures, material logging and bar coding; carryout proper techniques from bar coding to smart labelling (RFID), label documentation, encoding, printing and validating smart labels; identify RFID architecture, RFID tags and computerized inventory management systems; clarify engineering materials; and apply material specifications, preservation, packaging and storage for bearings, belts, couplings, gaskets, seals, roller chains and sprockets, valves, pipelines, piping, fittings, flanges, bolts, nuts and blinds.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

    • Apply and gain systematic techniques on material logging specifications, handling and storage.
  • Discuss material basics covering the detailed engineering specifications, brand name provisions, commercial standards, etc.

  • Interpret register basics that includes stock activity graphs, economic order quantity (EOQ), dual re-order points, inventory automation examples, etc.

  • Implement inventory control comprising of perpetual inventory, variations on the perpetual, register method, cycle counts, annual inventory and controlling storeroom values.

  • Describe spare parts lists and spare optimization.

  • Identify the equipment spares and apply spares demand planning for equipment reliability and supply chain management.
