Repair and Overhaul

The products we supply to our customers are often employed in very harsh environments. Accordingly, we have the capabilities and infrastructure in place to provide quick response repair of failed hardware. Our overhaul services help to ensure our customers get best value and maximum useful life from their products.

SED can also extend our Repair and Overhaul offering to suppliers who have a In Service Support obligation for their products, but do not have a significant presence in Canada.

Inventory Control

Our inventory is managed using an MRP-II project requirements planning tool. Inventory is kept in a controlled-access and stable environment to ensure is is preserved in a production-ready state. Forward and backward material traceability is in place. To ensure repetitive build products are manufactured in a lean and efficient environment, we often use KANBAN inventory control methods.

In some circumstances, we hold customer or government-owned inventory as a means to reduce repair turnaround time.

Obsolescence

We take a proactive approach to design manufacturability, and, using our extensive Engineering expertise, work with our customers to ensure any obsolescence issues are identified and mitigated as they arise. This helps our customers maintain a high level of system operational effectiveness while maximizing effective operational life.

Configuration Control

SED has processes in place to ensure that the configuration of manufactured product, from design documentation to product delivery is strictly maintained, documented and controlled.
