Typically, in MRO and airline inventory planning, the response to this gap is to develop manual workarounds, which usually give less than optimal results. People work outside the ERP using spreadsheets, tribal and tacit knowledge, and their best subjective judgement, unsupported by any analytical system

Inventory management for airline and MRO differs from standard manufacturing techniques and is much more complex. We are repairing and keeping serviceable highly engineered, mission-critical assets, as opposed to manufacturing from raw materials and distributing.
Our objective is to provision against forecast uncertainty to deliver a level of service. We are spending to mitigate uncertainty, in an economically efficient manner. Obviously, it does not make economic sense to make these risk-mitigating decisions on a part by part basis in isolation. This myopic approach opens the door to inefficiency and waste.
