This article describes the rationalised maintenance and stockpiling of spare parts as practised by the large shipping company of Wilhelmsen. The rationalisation results in a feedback system of planning spares supplies from data available, execution of plan, recording of supplies and analysis of spares held in stock which then allows further planning for the procurement of spare parts. The article then explains how each of these steps can be dealt with in practice and how all spare parts and equipment are categorically coded for quick and accurate reference. Parallel lists of such spares are held in each ship and ashore to avoid misunderstanding and this allows accurate flow of information for spare parts ordered at sea. The system also facilitates the efficient supply of necessary spares at the vessel's earliest port of call. Order from BSRA as No. 49,679.
