In the 60’s-70’s we used simplier terms for today’s biggest business concepts:
5S-Always keep it clean and orderly: it is everyone’s job to maintain and control this process
What do you want to make? (Master Schedule) What does it take to make it? (Bills of Material) What do you have? (Inventory and Inventory Records Accuracy via daily cycle counting) What do you have to get? (Purchases and Manufacturing orders using offset leadtimes from the Item Master): Close the loop with feedback to the first question.
Six Sigma: Zero Defects programs using SPC (Statitical Process Control) and AQL (Acceptable QualityLevels)
LEAN: Increase Inventory turns, pull system versus pull systems, Ship -to-use programs
