The Problem

It takes too long to find master drawings(dwg) on file due to the accumulation and disorganization of the filing system. Over the past twenty-five years, drawings have been collected and filed. Today there are 2,000 drawings. The filing cabinets are large and the drawing folders are cumbersome.

Many of the drawings are obsolete. When searching for a drawing, technicians must sort through all these drawings. This takes effort and is impossible to keep organized. Many of the drawings are left out and never re-filed as you can see below.

Based on the fish diagram below, poor file management is caused by several factors.
