Maintaining an inventory of on-site spare parts involves a unique set of challenges.
Experienced inventory professionals are difficult to recruit and retain. Proper storage spaces for automated valve assemblies are costly to construct and expensive to operate. Resource constraints make it difficult to effectively maintain a reliable on-site inventory of critical automated valve spares. Automated valves assets are difficult to locate, are either stored in expensive, on-site warehouses or outside in sub-optimal conditions and are not properly maintained while in storage.
