Frank’s Observations:
Most storerooms and tools cribs are not organized, are inefficient, and are costly to run.
Few companies know what parts or tools they have on-hand, or where they are. 
Parts databases are inaccurate, not up-to-date, and contain duplications.
Parts-related production downtime is very costly and contributes directly to higher plant operating and maintenance costs. 
Parts storage areas represent a major source of corporate maintenance savings.
Organized storerooms correct the costly inefficiencies generated by unorganized and cluttered storerooms.
