Calculate optimum inventory levels based on actual sales and usage, reducing excess inventory and shortages, without the complexity of MRP/APS. The SyteLEAN PullSystem is an easy to use, inventory management system for items that are regularly purchased or manufactured.
An electronic Kanban system, SyteLEAN PullSystem automatically “right-sizes” the selected inventory items based on average usage and variability, and “pulls” the replacement orders when inventory is consumed. It replenishes inventory to the optimum level by creating Kanban “planned orders” that are combined with the APS/MRP planned orders which can be reviewed and released using the SyteLine Planner’s Workbench. Using SyteLEAN PullSystem, manufacturers can automatically manage inventory levels for changes in demand and product mix using LEAN concepts that are much easier to deploy and manage than MRP.
