In contrast, the lean approaches do not generally apply to products with the opposite characteristics, such as low certainty of demand, erratic demand patterns, low usage rates, long lead time components, and dynamically changing product structures. The traditional SCM approaches tend to work better for products with these opposite characteristics. Vendor-managed inventory may also be considered for low-cost high-usage components such as nuts and bolts. Lean manufacturing approaches have Read More
