lean definition tco  vendors have been professing lean or demand-driven functionality, most of them still support some nuggets of pseudo just-in-time (JIT) ways of accommodating mass customization. Supporting kanbans or vendor managed inventory (VMI) to push inventory elsewhere (e.g., suppliers) rather than to reduce stock across the entire supply chain is a far cry from a truly supported lean or demand-driven manufacturing. On the other hand, MRP should not be discounted as useless just like that, since it will often have an Read More
