Continued global supply chain issues have caused all businesses in all industries to move away from the just-in-time model. An inventory of critical spares is necessary to mitigate downtime. After all, the longer you scale is down, the more money you lose.
Having Critical Spares Is Like Having Insurance
Needless to say to buy insurance to reduce risk. Buying critical spares is like buying insurance. Having them reduces the risk of having your vehicle scale down for an extended period of time. It is important to note that Precision Scale is experiencing wait times of six weeks or longer on some critical parts. This means you will have to possibly wait six weeks or longer to get your vehicle scale repaired. How much money will you lose if your scale is down six weeks? Or longer?
Supply Chain Issues Expected To Continue
Supply chain issues are expected to continue for at least the next few years. We believe this so much that our custom shack designs include a dedicated critical spares storage area. Having them on hand will greatly help our technicians get your scale up and running as soon as possible.
