When a control system is used to operate items of plant equipment that are imperative to the everyday operation of the business or to supply customers and enable you, the customer, to meet the demands set to you, it is highly important that machine downtime is mitigated wherever possible.
When parts are deemed as susceptible to wear and tear and therefore, present an increased chance of failure, long lead times can often prevent customers from meeting high demands set upon them. CWM Automation can offer a bespoke spares management advice service.
If the system is of our own design, we can provide detailed lists of parts we advise should be held in surplus quantities, grading these with priority using considerations such as chance of part failure, cost of replacement, lead times and quantities used throughout the system.
When a system is not of our own design, CWM Automation can have one of our experienced electrical engineers assess the system in question, before working with your bill of parts to create our own recommended spares management list.
CWM Automation can also order the parts for you, taking advantage of our dedicated purchasing team to negotiate the best possible prices and some of our trusted supplier discounts we have available.
