Flow Production – Implementation of “just in time” techniques to reduce lot size, reduces set up times, slash work-in progress inventory, minimise nonvalue-added activities, improve throughput, and reduce manufacturing cycle time. JIT production typically involves use of “pull” signals to initiate production activity, in contrast to work- order (push) systems in which production scheduling typically is based on forecasted demand rather than actual orders. In many”pull” systems, a customer order/shipment date triggers final assembly, which in turn forces replenishment of components WIP inventory at upstream stages of production.
