agile manufacturing  eliminate waste, such as agile, JIT, and lean manufacturing, given that all of these use pull signals to replenish supplies and are subject to continuous improvement. However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional algorithmic techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day, and in any given quantity including the quantity of one (i.e., EOQ = 1), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders ever more quickly. To support continuous Read More
