Your business is doing well. Your orders are going out the door, mostly on time. Your supplies are usually where you have them when you need them. It seems like on occasion the part or supply you need and you are sure was in stock is gone. Or maybe it’s ruined. Either way, you’ve tried to implement a great many changes to help keep track.
But no matter what changes you make, it still seems like you are spending hours every week looking for parts, material, or tools. Perhaps it is growing pains.
