Just-in-Time (JIT) Manufacturing Services via LeanWerks’ “Next Day Supermarket” Delivery System
24-Hour Turnaround Times – Reduced Inventory Costs – On-Time/On-Demand SupplyContinuously striving to provide better efficiency and sustainability throughout the manufacturing process, LeanWerks has engineered an integrated supply system that can be adapted to virtually any product that experiences fluctuating demand over time. In our just-in-time (JIT) production system, the natural fluctuation in product demand can be isolated from the manufacturing process through the use of inventory buffers at strategic locations.
A More Efficient Pull System Based on ConsumptionOur quality-engineered just-in-time production system allows the manufacturing process to run more efficiently. This is due to the fact that it can standardize on a single batch size and schedule production in a more planned and controlled fashion. In our system, the term “supermarket” is the name given to the buffer inventory in a pull system based on consumption. Over time the manufacturer works to improve processes, and reduce upstream lead times in order to reduce the manufacturing lead time, which in turn allows the manufacturer to reduce that standard batch size and also the amount of inventory in the supermarket without impacting the capacity of the supermarket to satisfy fluctuations in demand.
The Advantages of Our Just-in-Time Production SupermarketThe efficiency of our integrated system enables LeanWerks to focus on batch reduction and overall process improvements while continuing to optimize your products for manufacturability. All of these enhancements reduce your costs and lead to a faster, more reliable production solution. Other benefits of our just-in-time delivery system include:
- Same-day shipping.
- Low inventory holding requirements.
- Reliable on-time delivery.
- Efficiently adapt to market fluctuations.
- No expedited shipping costs.
