I’m an Engineering and maintenance manager. I actually provide a service to production, and this service is about “supplying ” compliance, availability and reliability of manufacturing assets. To supply this, we can outsource some services such as repairing, overhauling or asset care. I therefore need to identify trusted and skilled suppliers with the required level of expertise and competencies. It can also be a physical supply chain as I need to buy spare parts or new equipment to replace obsolete one. This needs to be planned and outlooked early enough to arrive in time for the annual planned outage, to avoid unnecessary stocks and cost.
