2015-07-28 18:47 UTC by Scott Robinson

Jeff Muscarella of the spend management consultancy NPI offered several important considerations...

Lean supply chain, Pt. 4: resource planning in parallel
2015-05-20 12:39 UTC by Scott Robinson

Manufacturing resource planning is increasingly essential to lean supply chain efficiency. But having MRP in place may be only a partial measure.

Lean supply chain, Pt. 3: accountability in demand forecasting

Lean supply chain, Pt. I: letting suppliers in
2015-05-12 16:50 UTC by Scott Robinson
