New date PASA MRO for Procurement Conference, 20 & 21 September, Brisbane


MRO for Procurement, 20 & 21 September 2018, The Stamford Plaza, Brisbane

You may recall that earlier in the year we were promoting the MRO for Procurement conference for early June. However, at that stage we hadn’t factored in me deciding to fall off a motorbike at 250kph at the racetrack. Injuries were pretty significant.

As a result we decided to postpone. The programme has now been finalized (and improved) so we are full steam ahead for 20/21 September. I look forward to seeing you at the event,
Nigel Wardropper, PASA

Event Overview

Is your MRO programme under control or is it, as is often the case, a shambles, or worse still, don’t you know? Effective management of MRO is notoriously challenging presenting an extremely wide range of issues, many of which are unique to the category.

This two day conference is designed to provide procurement leaders newly faced with the challenge of managing MRO with insights into making the business case for managing MRO, exploration of the roles of key stakeholders, and insights into key tactics and strategies.

The conference will also be valuable to MRO category managers, supply chain managers, inventory and asset managers, and anybody else responsible for effective spare parts management.

This two-day special event will give your organization the insight to gain greater control of your MRO and spare parts inventory spend, address your key issues with MRO and spare parts inventory management and unlock the significant hidden costs-savings associated with MRO procurement.

This conference answers the fundamental question of ‘How can procurement, spare parts management, maintenance, and service professionals work together to deliver the right spare parts to provide to customers, production and operations at the right time to reduce downtime and ultimately reduce cost?’

The format for the event is a more traditional conference format on day one, with multiple presentations and discussions, while day two is an extended, practical workshop on best practice MRO management.

Day one conference highlights include insights into:

  • Making the business case for MRO management
  • Understanding the biggest challenges in MRO procurement today
  • Who should be accountable for MRO and why?
  • Agile procurement and why it is important in the MRO space
  • Supply Chain Planning for MRO Materials
  • The impact of the Internet of Things on MRO and spare parts management
  • The role of 3D printing in spare parts management
  • Driving change – the skills and attributes for success
  • The role of technology in effective spare parts management

Day two workshop:

  • How to create a best in class MRO and spare parts management strategy

Over two, content filled days you will hear from industry leaders about hard-won lessons learnt and case studies highlighting the ‘pitfalls’ and ‘wins’ realised by tried and tested MRO strategies.

…. See, we told you that this conference is a stand out!
