Abstract

In many organizations MRO (maintenance, repair, and operation) spending represents an area of significant cost savings. The primary goal of this project is to analyze the current MRO spending for the Nypro Pan China region and to estimate the potential savings that could be achieved through a more strategic MRO management. This project proposes a potential MRO supplier classification system, MRO vendor reduction model, among other recommendations for Nypro China to implement to achieve their over-arching goal to improve the MRO purchasing process.
