Abstract

Maintenance, Repair and operations (MRO) have following features: large sum of types, relatively low requirement, and high transition cost. It costs companies a lot of money and human resource on MRO procurement. In order to make MRO procurement more efficient and scientific, this paper compared the cost of two MRO supply chain modes to get a scope for each mode. And then SOM neural networks method can be used to cluster the materials. Different types of materials take advantage of different procurement mode.
