While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

jit lean system  also caters to both JIT that is used for build-to-order or final assembly manufacturing, and to lean manufacturing, which is suitable for build-to-demand pull for finished and component items. Namely, most companies will still use MRP to ascertain longer-term dependent demand (i.e., based on forecasts), but replenishment will be based on independent demand (i.e., actual customer orders), with closely managed inventory buffers. Customer demand cannot be predicted months ahead, since nothing is that Read More

Traditionally, manufacturers have used the concept of economic order quantity (EOQ), which is also known as economic lot size or minimum cost order quantity, to determine their optimal manufacturing batch and lot sizes or quantities of purchased materials. EOQ is a type of fixed order quantity model that determines the amount of an item to be purchased or manufactured at one time, with the intent of minimizing the combined costs of acquiring and carrying Read More
