Service Parts Management

The most effective results can be achieved by retaining Patton Consultants to come into your organization and complete the PARTS process. We customize our program to address unique aspects of your business. Yes, it is possible to both increase the level of support and reduce the cost of inventory.

SMARTS (Service Management Analysis, Recommendations, Tactics and Strategies) programs have improved performance of headquarters functions, field service and depot repair operations in many organizations with excellent results that reduce costs and boost revenues. If you are interested in getting a thorough and truthful assessment of your current operations, Patton can help.
Operational Implementation is where consulting meets action. Determining the root cause problems and making recommendations is just the beginning of realizing the value in permanent solutions and gaining the benefit of making problems go away forever. Architecting lasting change takes time, experience, and knowledge. A great value is to provide professional implementation services that assure program success.
Design for Serviceability
If your product never fails, then serviceability is not an issue. However, for those products that have the potential to fail, serviceability should be considered in the product concept and design stages. Patton Consultants has many years of experience working with product developers to help optimize lifecycle tradeoffs of design efforts, product cost, manufacturability, warranty and service cost. Let Patton help you produce the next generation of very serviceable products.
