Life Cycle Institute Introduces MRO Storeroom Management Online Training and Toolkit
CHARLESTON, SC – July 9, 2019 – Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) announced the launch of eMRO, an MRO Storeroom Management eLearning course and toolkit, through its education entity, Life Cycle Institute.
Implementing MRO Storeroom Management best practices is one of the fastest ways for asset-intensive plants and facilities to improve operating performance. Having the right replacement parts and supplies available in the right place at the right time reduces the risk of downtime and excessive material costs.
eMRO combines MRO standards and decades of best-practice benchmarking into a performance-driven, self-paced online solution to manage storerooms in a way that meets the needs of operations, optimizes inventory and reduces carrying costs.
This toolkit of best practices for storeroom and inventory management includes more than 40 templates and job aids like an MRO program assessment and maturity model, storeroom improvement roadmap, ABC classification guidelines, inventory cycle count procedure, critical spares decision-making criteria, team charter example, score card example, metrics list, case studies, action plans and 15 process overviews that span the buy, store, use and dispose phases from new item set-up, to storeroom receiving, to inventory stocking and obsolete inventory identification.
eMRO eLearning was designed by certified learning professionals who are also maintenance and reliability professionals (CMRP, CRL), and developed by a team of eLearning specialists using eLearning cutting-edge best practices and approaches. Like its eLearning predecessors, eMPS and eRCM, this course makes it easy for organizations to:
- Reach geographically dispersed teams
- Offer just-in-time and rapid onboarding training
- Achieve a consistent, enterprise-wide work management vocabulary and knowledge baseline
“Managing a storeroom is a balancing act. Storeroom managers must have the materials available to support reliability and availability while minimizing inventory investment,” said Bill Wilder, Life Cycle Institute Director. “This eLearning course is so much more than online slides and lectures – it’s an expertly designed toolkit that will help people learn and apply the skills they need to ensure the right parts are in the right place at the right time.”
