Apply 3C Theory in Spare Parts Management in Mobile Phone Industry

Chun- Ta Lin, Chih- Yao Lo and Chia -Hsing Lin

Abstract:
The product lifecycle of mobile phones are usually less than six months. Once mobile phone products have no commercial value any more in the market, their associated spare parts will soon becoming idle stocks, or even dead stocks. Even if some manufacturers may promise to have after-sale warranty to customers, however, due to the nature of the uncertainty in demand and supply information from the service company, manufacturer will usually have to take all the risk of the dead stock. Therefore, the study applies the 3C theory to monitor the demand of specific spare parts in the market demand based on the commonality, capacity and consumption (3C) of the spare parts. Meanwhile, an adaptive replenishment system for each spare part based on 3C theories and the dependency between one spare part with the other has been proposed.
