Supply chain is the result of a thin balance between offer and demand.
Various events often lead to breaking it: supplier bankruptcy, customs issues, delay of delivery…
Traditional risk management leads to increasing inventory levels, a very expensive solution.

All the spare parts are not equally on demand, don’t need to be produced in the same quantities and don’t cost the same.
But all may be available anytime to provide your potential customer, whatever their rentability.
Traditional ways of handling this situation are:
- Keeping high inventory levels
- Producing small batches according to demand
- Decide not to produce parts because of the low demand
So do you prefer losing money in oversized warehousing, buying smaller size batches at a higher price per part, or with poor after-sales performance?

Once first mount products are not sold anymore, the demand for parts carries on but reduces substantially.
After the last-buy order, production is stopped and the mould put in storage. Often it becomes difficult later on to source additional parts:
