Vendor Managed Inventory: Strategic Supply

For our nuclear customers, there are many spare parts which get consumed on a daily basis. Differing from our Maintenance Kit Program, Vendor Managed Inventory is perfect for unplanned, sporadic, daily maintenance needs.

Westinghouse can help you establish the list of consumable spares, and then design an inventory solution around it. Whether you need one centralized location to obtain your parts, or you need them in different spots around the plant, Westinghouse can establish the inventory onsite as needed.
