    Local Inventory Reduces Downtime

    Inventory Management Reduction

    North American Paper Company

    Challenge:

    Customer called with an emergency situation. All instrument air lines were plugged with Calcium Carbonate. Paper machine was unable to start until valve positioners were replaced.

    Solution:
    • Pull 18 positioners from Crane inventory
    • Delivered positioners to local mill within 20 minutes of the after-business hour call
    • Technician and Sales Engineer showed plant personnel how to install and calibrate the positioners
    • Due to the urgency of the situation, no PO was issued and paperwork was handled the following week
    Results:
    • Paper machine was able to start within hours of the call to Crane Engineering
    • Hours, if not days of unscheduled downtime were avoided
    • Customer only ended up requiring 14 positioners, the remaining items were returned with no charges
    • ($/hour of production) × (avoided hours of downtime delivered) = Significant Savings to Customer
