There are two chief disadvantages to fabricating spare parts. Firstly, the fabrication of a spare part before it is needed consumes often scarce resources for no other reason than anticipation of a possible future event. Secondly, once the spare part is fabricated, it has to be stored and can degrade or become useless prior to it being needed.
