A few years ago, the Materials Management Department at a local hospital approached us and asked us to offer our assistance in managing their supply chain process. Their objective was to relieve medical and surgical technicians of having to review, prepare requisitions, receive and store their supplies so that they could perform more of their normal duties. At the same time, we saw an opportunity to reduce their supply cost and manage their inventory more effectively.
We targeted several areas that had no par levels set up, would routinely run out of supplies, and had to order extra supplies to compensate for the stock-outs that were adding additional supply costs to their areas. By compiling a usage history report we began to develop par level lists for each area. Much time was taken to review the items and quantities to ensure we all agreed and were comfortable with the par level list.
From there we calculated the labor cost savings and inventory PAR level savings analysis to help the Materials Management Department justify the project. We estimated an almost 80% reduction in labor hours and a 33% reduction in on-hand inventory would be achieved by implementing an automated PAR Level Inventory Management solution. This worked out to be a savings of over $60,000 a year, per department. Based on these numbers, approval to move forward was a no-brainer.
The satisfaction level of the project was so high that we were approached by several other departments at that location and various other properties.
It was then that we realized that a full-blown, enterprise-wide, warehouse management system wasn’t always necessary for an organization to realize the benefits of automating their inventory control process. From there, the PAR Level Inventory Management solution was born.
