JIT in Variable Marketplaces
Beddoe, Manager, United Kingdom, Member
In trying to implement a JIT system within my organisation. We are finding difficulties due to the random flows we are seeing. This random flow of products is making it hard to establish optimal stock levels.
With optimal stock levels established we hope to implement electronic kanbans to trigger ordering of replacement stock.
Can anyone suggest the best way to achieve such controls or examples of how this has been implemented elsewhere?
Your comments and assistance would be greatly appreciated....Register
