Four important questions regarding efficient tool usage:

  1. Do your machinists spend time searching for misplaced or missing tools?
  2. Do you pay expediting fees for tool delivery?
  3. Do missing tools sometimes hide in machinists’ toolboxes?
  4. Do forgotten and obsolete tools remain in your inventory, with no benefit to you?

The above questions—especially if you answered “Yes” to any of them—reveal the unnecessary expenses, headaches, and late deliveries that can have a drastic effect on your company‘s bottom line.
