riding the cycle
Re: "will someone please hit the reset button?" (Outbound, May 2009)
I read your article with great interest. And I echo your pointed question ... why is life-cycle logistics so far out of the leadership's mind?
As consumers, we certainly factor the lifecycle cost of what we "acquire"; witness the rise of imported autos and the consequent demise of the domestic auto industry.

Re: "what the Intelligrated/FKI deal means to you," (NewsWorthy, July 2009)
Your article states that Crisplant was once part of the Pinnacle Group. In fact, Crisplant was never part of the Pinnacle Group but was bought by FKI before FKI purchased the Pinnacle Group.
