    Just wondered if you all may be able to help from your experiances of your own workplace.

    Basically so far my work place just orders in any components needed to replace faults in PCs, plugs, extensions, phones etc. Obviously this delays jobs and is frustrating especially when its just a replacement of part.

    So I was wondering what people keeping stock of currently?

    Replacement parts? I fire of an email, and have the parts by 10am the next day..! :) Thats for our user computers etc anyway.

    We do have a stock of full blown machines that are ready to role out, all thats needed is a few quick profile related changes and they're ready go to. Our workspace environment is mostly generic so dont have too many problems with this method.

    The only bits we have in stock for replacements are the critical components on our servers/network such as a couple of basic modems, switches, RAID drives, RAM, power supplies, network cards.... oh and of course, a few mice and keyboards for when people spill their coffee. :)
