Parts Inventory Optimization

Our project was to organize the Frito-Lay parts inventory crib with engineered solutions to reduce machine downtime and increase space utilization. With the announcement of the new expansion to the Killingly Site there will be a future need to manage inventory for new equipment that will be coming in the following years. The Maintenance and Engineering Department is looking to optimize the space that it currently utilizes for parts inventory, and streamline the workflow for inventory management through the use of Lean Six Sigma process improvement to position ourselves for the changes coming to the site.
