Avoid the Perils of Service Parts Planning in Supply Chain Management
Significant differences exist between the new parts production supply chain and the service and replacement parts supply chain. Companies using conventional

Source: MCA Solutions Replenishment processes for service and replacement parts differ significantly from those for new products too, since new product inventories are always replenished from regularly (if not continually) running production batches. The key issue is to synchronize distribution needs and production schedules. Again, breakdown repair is a major source for service and replacement part inventories, especially Read More
Lean Tools and Practices that Eliminate Manufacturing Waste
A number of lean manufacturing tools and practices have long been used to reduce manufacturing waste. These include the five S's, visual controls, standardized

difference between upstream and downstream supply chain  Such solutions illustrate the difference between kanban and other lean manufacturing techniques and JIT sequencing. Both are execution-oriented, since both respond to demand in near real time. However, lean manufacturing customarily tends to focus on the replenishment and supply of commodity parts (i.e., parts that are shipped in standard packs by the dozen or as case lots), while JIT sequencing concentrates on unique (or configured) parts, which are shipped individually or shipped with other configured Read More

difference between upstream and downstream supply chain  The Supply Chain Network And Reducing Distribution Costs - An Andersen Point Of View Introduction    The objective of supply chain logistics - to provide goods to the right place at the right time in the right quantity - is easy to understand, but achieving this objective while minimizing costs is not an easy task. Each decision made at one level of the supply chain has an impact on another level. The goal of conducting a network analysis is to determine: From how many facilities, which ones Read More
