Automation and technical advancement have produced best technological machines where human dependence and  interference  have been  greatly  reduced. This advancements have also reduced the maintainability of components to ‘discard maintenance’ level only. Most electrical or electronic components cannot be ‘pm’ or repaired as these failure patterns falls under random failure. Most mechanical parts too, are designed for reliability and thus requires replacement at specific time frame.

New maintenance techniques such as predictive maintenance, reliability centred maintenance have enhanced life span detectability. With all these advancements, having the right part at the right time, in the right quantity makes it very critical for achieving PQCDSM.  Therefore, purchasing, stoking and controlling spare parts becomes an ultimate necessary for  continuous  non-stop  operation.
