Partstat Case Study

Aerospace: End-of-Life/Last Time Buy

Quick Summary

  • Capital Preserved: $2.8M
  • Partstat Savings: $228K
  • Term: 3 Years

A leading aerospace manufacturer utilized a microcircuit graphics accelerator module in production. The OEM encountered an unexpected Last Time Buy notice for this critical component required for three years, and consequently, needed to place a Last Time Buy for $2.8M.

Through an Inventory Ownership Solution, Partstat placed the Last Time Buy directly with the component manufacturer. The OEM and Partstat entered into a supply agreement. Partstat provided a three-year delivery schedule to support the OEM.

The OEM preserved $2.8M of working capital, lowered annual inventory carrying costs, secured inventory for three years, reinvested capital into winning projects, and locked in component costs.
