What is best practice for dealing with Engineering Spare Parts?


Hello All,

I am after some advice regarding the process for handling engineering spare parts in PM. (We run ECC 5)

Our current process is as follows:

All materials are set up as HIBE's

Each material is batch managed

The Batch field is used for the Bin location

We are now looking to role out PM to a site that has in excess of 50,000 spare parts and want to make sure we use best practice for handling the spare parts. We are now considering using a basic WM setup to handle the movement of parts.

Please can you provide me with some feedback on what you feel the best practice is for dealing with these parts?

We are looking to set up a solution that will us to generate pick lists etc and implment a scanning solution to move parts in and out of stores.
