A PRACTICAL STUDY IN SPARES/STOCK CONTROL
This project examines the need for a good system of control and proceeds to critically review the existing spares/stock control system actually used by a Shipping Company. Both strong and weak features are highlighted and a number of suggestions for improving procedures and forecasting based upon fleet operational experience by this Company are given. By applying a practical forecasting method in this particular case it is shown that there is potential for re-allocation of capital invested in spares and reduction in stockholding which would allow a capital saving of up to 350,000 English Pounds. Possible ways of improving the Spares Department are also stated. Order from BSRA as No. 51,254.
