This paper presents a framework for planning and control of the spare parts supply chain in organizations that use and maintain high-value capital assets. Decisions in the framework are decomposed hierarchically and interfaces are described. We provide relevant literature to aid
decision making and identify open research topics. The framework can be used to increase the efficiency, consistency and sustainability of decisions on how to plan and control a spare parts supply chain. This point is illustrated by applying it in a case-study. Applicability of the framework in different environments is also investigated.
