14 Design Principles

Welcome to Lesson 14, on the Design Principles and Material Presentation for a successful Material Management System.  In this lesson we’re going to focus on ten principles that can drive near-perfect parts availability, high-velocity inventory turns, excellent operator productivity, and minimal waste of material and motion.

Here are the goals for this lesson:

  1. The 10 Material Management design principles should come as second nature for you and your team.
  2. Create a checklist for these principles. Do not leave it up to guesswork.
  3. Finally, add the Material Flow Principles to the PFEP database, when it is appropriate to do so.
