The Dresser-Rand Olean plant is currently going through the process of developing a new control system to track all of their parts. At this time it does not seem feasible to fully implement an expensive change that may be scrapped a year from now. That being said, it is recommended that the low cost solution be implemented in order to ensure yellow ordering cards are being filled out. This has zero negative impact on current operations as the system is already in place.
An additional study would need to be performed to determine the effects that a material handler (water spider) would have on the overall system. There is not enough data to show the ROI value at this time. The amount of information and data needed could provide for a Senior Capstone project.
