Spare Parts Management in the Automotive Industry Considering Sustainability
Spare parts are a fundamental part of the automotive industry, even if they are intended for out of series market and aftermarket products. Throughout this study, a process for formulating an inventory model for spare parts is presented through this paper, a proposal for an inventory management system applied to automotive spare parts and based on forecast and simulation is presented. The objective is to improve the implementation of an inventory system in order to reduce transportation, storage and production costs by studying the behavior of demand, the applicability of an inventory management policy and the use of simulations to test the proposed results. This allows correcting parameters to avoid stock shortage and to integrate sustainable paradigms.
