Abstract

Notes the importance of new internal supply chains being properly interfaced with the marketplace. Suggests that the appropriate way forward is to design and implement a "leagile supply chain". Whereas leanness may be achieved by eliminating non-value added time, agility usually requires the additional reduction of value-added time via production technology breakthroughs. Demonstrates how the "lean" and "agile" paradigms may be integrated. This requires evaluation of the total performance metric and development of a route map for integrating lean production and agile supply in the total chain. Presents results achieved in a re-engineered real world supply chain serving the electronic products market.
