Plan for Every Part (PFEP) and Inventory Layout

Course Description

Plan for Every Part (PFEP) is proven to be the most effective way to optimize end to end material flow. Breakthrough results in inventory right-sizing, on-time-delivery, manufacturing throughput, and cost reduction can be achieved through this discipline, but how do you do it?

This two part series will work backwards from customer demand to manufacturing conveyance and presentation to supplier replenishment methods and frequencies in order to develop, deploy and sustain end to end lean material flow processes. You will learn the critical components of PFEP that ensure delivery of the right parts, at the right time, in the right place, in the right quantity, with the right quality, at the right cost.

Course 2: PFEP and Inventory Layout

How can my organization store inventory to support a PFEP program and optimize material flow? How can our warehousing processes enable PFEP? How do we best allocate resources?
