One of our readers would like some feedback on how other departments handle repairs. Curious about a possible trend, he asks:
“As OEMs tighten their service and support models, are biomeds using the tape gun instead of the screwdriver more than ever?”

With the shifting economy, has your service model changed? Have you seen a transition to the tape gun model?
