Spare parts criticality assessment

The spare parts criticality assessment is a process that is essential to the operation of an efficient warehouse and inventory management system. Some aspects are essential to ensure the continuous operation of the terminal, while other aspects may not have such a critical effect on operations. This is why the criticality assessment should be conducted to rank spare parts as critical or non-critical.


Spare parts logistics play a crucial role in maintaining a high index of equipment availability. However, while an out-of-stock scenario leads to equipment shutdowns, it is critical to have only those spares in the warehouse that are necessary for the continuity of operations and to avoid overstocking.
