In Step 4, we delve into the crucial phase of spares procurement and repair execution, pivotal for a smooth repair process.

Spares Procurement and Repair Process

Order Parts:

  • Service Advisor checks stock availability. If not in stock, the Spares In-charge initiates the order based on the vehicle’s specifics.
  • Parts must be ordered precisely based on the vehicle’s Make, Model, Variant, and Year (MMVY) to ensure accuracy and quality. As evident in the picture below, there could be substantial difference in the parts used on the vehicle based on the MMVY. See the differences in the body panels, headlights etc. Such differences are also possible in Electrical and Mechanical components.

Importance of Correct Vehicle Specification in Spares Procurement

Procurement Process:

  • The Service Advisor initiates a Material Request to Spares.
  • Spares issues a Purchase Order to the Vendor.

  • Technician utilization and productivity are recorded for transparency.

Additional Repairs:
