The Customer Support department Spares Supply Chain is responsible for forecasting, supplying and distributing spare parts on a global scale to operators / airlines, MRO and aircraft manufacturers. The delivery performance of spare parts is a key success factor in our business.
The Spare Supply Planner is responsible to ensure the availability of spare parts to our customers, in the required quantities, within deadlines requested by the customer, while maintaining the lowest possible level of stock.
You will have the ownership of your Supply plan and you will lead and monitor any relevant activities to improve your Supply Plan. You will need to perform some data analysis in order to support improvement proposals. You should be eager to manipulate & communicate with data.
A vital part of your role is to work closely with key stakeholders like Customer Support Managers & Production/Procurement. You will forge those relationships, closely discuss with them and evaluate different options to improve the supply plan to secure customer satisfaction at the end. Clear communication with these departments is key to managing customer expectations. You will clearly present and justify your recommendations in review meetings with senior management.
