Material- and Spare Parts Management for supply support, procurement and provisioning of material should be an integrated component of the Supply Chain Management (SCM)
Supply support consists of the management actions, procedures and techniques necessary to acquire, catalog, receive, store, transfer, issue and dispose of spares, repair parts and supplies. Supply support includes provisioning for initial support, as well as acquiring, distributing, and replenishing inventories as reflected in the supply chain management strategy. Proper supply support management results in having all the right spares, repair parts and all classes of supplies available, in the right quantities, at the right place, at the right time, at the right price.
