CBT offers a variety of programs and services that help you minimize your capital outlay and make your invested assets work. CBT's asset management solutions maximize your profitability without compromising your plant performance. We develop a tailored Rockwell Automation Parts Management Agreement (PMA) to ensure the availability of your spares parts and stabilize your maintenance budget. Inventory will be stocked at your site but owned by Rockwell Automation.
Step 1: Evaluate - The first step in cost reduction is an assessment of your current process for MRO inventory management and maintenance needs. IT is also vital to assess your installed base of automation equipment and spares inventory.
Step 2: Design - Identify process efficiencies and areas to improve inventory and production issues, which may include:
Step 3: Implement - Implement ROI-driven processes that will improve productivity, lower costs and enable financial predictability.
Step 4: Measure & Optimize - Use measurement and dashboard reporting tools to drive continuous improvement, helping you meet business goals such as improved regulatory compliance, faster time to market and reduced production costs.
A PMA reviews your installed base of components and develops a list of the correct parts you need in your storeroom. The inventory is owned by Rockwell Automation but stocked at your location. For a monthly fee, you have the protection you need without spending a large portion of your capital budget for on-hand inventory. Additionally, you receive a more robust warranty, pay a reduced price for a replacement, and never have to worry about being burdened with obsolete items.
