LEAN vs. MRP Friend or Foe?

KCMN April meeting and SOR plant tour – Thanks to all who made this tour a great success – for those who missed the tour, photos are below!

SOR has been on a LEAN journey since 2010.  A significant element of this LEAN journey has been design and implementation of techniques for improving demand flow.  Everything SOR supplies is executed via a configure and build to order process.  With the many options offered in our product set this results in a high mix production environment with a relatively high variability in demand.  Come see how SOR has used LEAN demand flow techniques such as design capacity, Kanban, and standard packaging, in concert with MRP in our LEAN implementation.
