ABC classification is a simple and powerful inventory management tool that plays a vital role in inventory control and material flow planning. It empowers lean manufacturers to improve the efficiency of the inventory replenishment schedule. It is a straightforward task, and if you want to implement Kanban, it’s an essential prerequisite.
Inventory management can be complicated, confusing and time-consuming, dragging down lean manufacturing efforts for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Finding new ways to handle the parts procurement process and manage inventories could potentially lay the groundwork for manufacturing operations that constantly self-improve.
As the clock counts down to 2016, OEMs should celebrate the value VMI programs can bring to Class C Component procurement.
