Henry Ford created the first moving assembly line reducing the time to build a Model T from 728 hours to 1. manufacturers started to mass-produce customized products. Lean manufacturing focuses on flexibility and quality more than on efficiency and quantity. Henry Ford’s famous statement “You can have any color Model T as long as it’s black” no longer applies.

The Impact .

The Impact • The Turning Point (The Economist. the contents of warehouses has had a surprisingly big effect on its volatility. on average. When industries cut or add stocks according to demand. more than half the improvement in the stability of economic growth in the countries they studied is accounted for by diminished inventory cycles. The entire inventory of some lean-running companies now consists of whatever FedEx or UPS is shipping on their account. Mr Cecchetti and his colleagues calculate that. This makes huge stocks unnecessary and minimizes the lurches in inventories that were once so destabilizing. But thanks to improvements in technology. that adjustment magnifies the effect of the initial change in sales. firms now have timelier and better information about buyers. 9/20/07) – “For such a tiny part of GDP. That something so workaday as supply-chain management could have so marked an effect might seem a dull conclusion. Stock levels were once much larger relative to the size of the economy. Speedier market intelligence and production in smaller batches allows firms to match supply to changing conditions. so a small slip in demand could easily blow up into a recession. because technological improvement is irreversible” . But dullness is a virtue.

Study of Supply Chain Management • A supply chain is a sequence of processes and flows that take place within and between different stages – Cycle view • The processes in a supply chain are divided into a series of cycles. each performed at the interface between two successive stages of a supply chain – Push/pull view • The processes in a supply chain are divided into two categories depending on whether they are executed in response or in anticipation of a customer order .
