Good points, but would stress the need for proper storage carts with shadow boards and documentation attached to the storage carts. Some companies even have covers to protect parts from dust and debris and secured areas to ensure carts are ready, complete, pre-cleaned, pre-checked and calibrated if needed.lean manufacturing

So true on your points. Unfortunately most companies run more production with the time saved from QDC and overlook the reduction of lot sizes as the better way. Good points for a separate post. lean manufacturing
