Dassault Falcon significantly increased its global spares inventory in 2011 by adding nearly $40 million (USD) in high-usage spares to its strategic distribution locations and further improve availability levels for Falcon operators around the world.
“Customer missions illustrate that they view their Falcon as a truly global business tool, and we’ve responded over the last year by placing even more high-usage parts in strategic locations to support their operations,” said Guillaume Landrivon, Vice President Worldwide Falcon Spares. “We’re already planning ahead as emerging markets in India, Asia and Latin America continue to embrace the benefits of business aviation, and we are opening significant inventories of spare parts in those locations as well.”
“New forecasting and planning software tools helped to guide the inventory placement” declared Kevin McNeill, Director of Spares for Dassault Falcon. To further improve dispatch reliability for Falcon operators, Falcon Spares placed the Top Ten Flight Delay and Cancellation parts as well as the Top Twenty High Removal Parts at all worldwide spares centers.
