Automotive Spare Part Inventory Support

A leading global supplier of original parts for the automotive industry, with over 40 years’ experience required the support of RGIS. It has a presence in 23 countries on four continents, with 40 manufacturing sites. The manufacturer designs, develops and produces filtration systems and flexible suspension components as well as air management and engine cooling systems.


The filtration system manufacturer needed support with an in-house inventory count, and recommendations for improvements due to previous failed internal counts, so required RGIS to provide the following:

The filtration system manufacturer partnered with RGIS to complete the in-house inventory support project, and provided the following:

  • Scheduled a team of 50 experienced RGIS auditors for three days
  • Training for all RGIS auditors in the manufacturer’s inventory methodology
  • The customer completed a pre-inventory prior to the start of the count
  • All stock was counted, supporting the in-house team on day one
  • Day two and three were spent checking variances between the system and the stock count


The filtration system manufacturer found by outsourcing the in-house inventory support project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • A total of 56,000 items were counted
  • Recommendations were made on how to improve existing internal process to enhance accuracy and save time
  • Stock count was completed on time
