    My company repairs items.  Each item has certain parts that are needed for repair.  We used to locate parts at the repair location for easy access.  Employees were able to diagnose a repair, locate their parts, and repair it.  However, the inventory accuracy was terrible.  It was a free-for all for the technicians (40-50 employees).  SO, we have since located all repair parts in a central location behind lock and key and an inventory staff member.  This has greatly extended the cycle time to complete a repair.  Which brings me to my question….
    Does anyone have any ideas or experience with locating inventory at the place it is needed and discovered a way to maintain control of that inventory?
