One of the fastest-growing yet most challenging industries in the world is Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO). In a cost-conscious world, it is often better to refurbish, for example, a commercial airliner than to buy a new one.
Also sometimes known as O&R (Overhaul & Repair), MRO is one of the most complex industries anywhere. The reason for this is that the nature of the business is high uncertainty. Imagine having to disassemble, inspect, plan, repair and execute the reassembly of a helicopter within a limited time window. Unlike manufacturing, you don’t know what you need to do your job until you take everything apart and inspect it.
Vector Strategies is without peer in MRO experience and success. Working with clients such as the United States Marines, the United States Navy, and commercial aerospace companies and shipyards, Vector Strategies has developed Integrated Enterprise Scheduling® (IES®) for the MRO industry.
IES® for MRO manages the project aspects of disassembly, reassembly and test; the production aspects of fabrication and routing component parts for repair; and the supply chain aspects of purchased parts and even of the assets themselves in a single synchronized scheduling algorithm that insures that all parts and people are in the right place at the right time. What’s more, we can accomplish this with diverse business systems, including MRP II and ERP.
