operations (MRO) not just as a way of doing business but as a way of doing
business better. This course provides an overview of advanced MRO management.
The procurement of maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) is becoming
increasingly important for organizations. Many companies have expanded the
definition of MRO to include professional services, logistics, transportation,
travel, advertising, and engineering within a separate departmental
organization called shared services.

business, but as a way of doing business better. The cost of MRO in the

Finally, with the growth of technology and third-party logistics providers,
the procurement of MRO now has more opportunities for improvement than were
available in the past. This course provides an overview of what advanced MRO
management entails, explores strategies and approaches for managing MRO and
suppliers, and focuses on ways to measure effectiveness and improvements.
