SE1349P - Service Lifecycle Management and Sustainability

When a customer exclaims, “we need this part or this asset fixed RIGHT NOW and can’t complete our project without it,” OEMs spring into action! When OEMs need to keep the client operational, it often means getting critical service parts and knowledgeable field service experts on the next flight, truck, or train. The total cost can be high when considering fuel consumption, transportation costs, person-hours, warehousing costs, and more. Still, with customer commitments (SLAs), the penalties for downtime can be even higher. How can OEMs use best-in-class service parts and lifecycle management technology to simultaneously improve the top-line and bottom-line performance AND contribute to corporate sustainability initiatives?
